Women want to see red over CSG

WHETHER it's a dash of fiery lipstick or full scarlet get-up, females who want to show their true colours against CSG exploration are being encouraged to wear red next Tuesday.

Over the weekend a Facebook group, Women Against Coal Seam Gas, was set up with about 100 women signing up in one day.

Organiser and Daily Examiner photographer Debrah Novak said the group supported CWA women and rural women and their families who will be marching in Sydney next Tuesday.

"It is clearly obvious the political parties are not listening, so the tagline "No means no" sits well with this campaign," she said.

"I would love to be there in person but, I know there are a lot of women like myself out there who would like to march to parliament house but due to work and family commitments we can't go."

She is asking women everywhere to wear red on Tuesday to show support, "It can be as small as lipstick, jewellery, clothing of any description."
