Please Explain podcast: What is the Women’s March 4 Justice?

Tens of thousands of Australians are expected to hit the streets at 40 rallies today for the Women’s March 4 Justice.

Organisers of the protest rally have rejected Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s invitation to meet privately in Parliament House on Monday after he declined to attend the Canberra rally in person.

The marches follow historical rape allegations against Attorney-General Christian Porter, which he vehemently denies, and claims from several women that they were sexually assaulted by a former Liberal staffer.

Today on Please Explain, Tory Maguire and deputy federal editor Stephanie Peatling discuss the women’s march and how it will affect the government.
