A stubby holder given to new Australian citizens:
The inevitable overreaction:
It’s exactly this kind of depiction of women that undermines what we are trying to do to reduce domestic violence and improve the way women are treated.
I am mortified that I could be associated in any way with material like that and I’m horrified by the possibility the young girls I met who were part of a family becoming Australian citizens could have received one.
And the inevitable apology:
Port Stephens Council has issued an unreserved apology after its newest citizens, including two young girls, received a “Welcome to Australia” pack that included a beer stubby holder with an Australian flag and a lurid naked lady silhouette straight from the back of a 1970s panel van.
A “naked” lady and an Australian flag; it’s doubly offensive.
