International Womens Day

Celebrating the girls and women in the Inner West – what they think is ordinary is really extraordinary!

Community celebration

The theme for the 2020 event was 'Strength in Sisterhood' honouring all the women who make up our community. We recognise all women and girls including First Nations, LGBTIQ women and women of intersecting and diverse cultural backgrounds. Sisterhood is powerful – we invite you to create community connections and bonds that support you and others to create strength as a collective.

We produced and screened a film in 2020 showcasing the women and girls that live, work and study in the Inner West. Though their stories and experiences differ, each of these shows that there are many beautiful and strong women and girls among us and the Sisterhood is strong.
