Australia: Senate "Strengthening Multiculturalism" inquiry accepting comments

Link here. This may not seem like a men's rights issues but in Australia, there are dozens of government subsidised "migrant women's" and "multicultural women's" organisations, most of a western feminist bend (which otherwise has no interest in other cultures and issues affecting migrants) and comprised of "diverse" women who have nothing in common except seeking mutual concessions and continued funding.

Readers knowledgeable about such issues might like to balance their inevitable submissions by making sure the issues and challenges of migrant men are also brought to the attention of the committee.

Excerpt:

'The committee is to inquire into and report on ways of protecting and strengthening Australia’s multiculturalism and social inclusion, with particular reference to:

a. the views and experiences of people from culturally and linguistically diverse, and new and emerging communities;
b. the adequacy and accessibility of settlement and social inclusion services and resources available to individuals and communities;
c. the adequacy of existing data collection and social research on racially motivated crimes;
d. the impact of discrimination, vilification and other forms of exclusion and bigotry on the basis of ‘race’, colour, national or ethnic origin, culture or religious belief;
e. the impact of political leadership and media representation on the prevalence of vilification and other forms of exclusion and bigotry on the basis of ‘race’, colour, national or ethnic origin, culture or religious belief;
f. how to improve the expected standards of public discourse about matters of ‘race’, colour, national or ethnic origin, culture or religious belief;
g. how to better recognise and value the contribution that diverse communities bring to Australian social and community life;
h. the potential benefits and disadvantages of enshrining principles of multiculturalism in legislation;
i. the potential benefits and disadvantages of establishing a legislative basis for the Multicultural Advisory Council, or for an ongoing Multicultural Commission; and
j. any related matters.'
