Embroidery by Vicky Potempa

This wonderful embroidery is displayed at WAAC events on every possible occasion.

Created by long time WAAC member Vicky Potempa in 2006, the embroidery specifically references the Howard government's Health Minister, Tony Abbott.

Abbott's notorious backroom  'deal's with anti-abortion extremist Senator Brian Harradine to deny Australian women access to RU486 ~ and how those deals would affect real women, are referenced in the embroidery.

The embroidery draws on images from the women's movement, as well as WAAC's herstory.
