Endeavour Forum was established in Melbourne in 1979 as Women Who Want to Be Women, largely throught the efforts of Babette Francis. It is a Christian, pro-life, pro-family lobby group with members in all Australian states. According to its website, the group was set up to 'counter feminism, defend the unborn and the traditional family.' Although outlawing abortion is high on their agenda, the group's broader aim is to prevent economic forces such as high taxation 'destroying families'. In particular it lobbies for the right of women to choose to be full time homemakers without suffering what they see as economic discrimination. While. it supports equality of opportunity for men and women in employment and education, it opposes affirmative action or positive discrimination.
