International Women's Day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on 8 March.

Led in Australia by UN Women, IWD spotlights global issues that perpetuate gender inequality and highlights actions we can all take on the path to a gender equal world.   

Gender Equity is everyone’s business 

Inner West is working towards real change on Gender Equity through our Inner West Council Gender Equity Strategy 2021 – 2025

Gender Equity is everyone’s business. International Women’s Day 2023. 

In addition to delivering a suite of International Women’s Day programs and events, Inner West is working towards real change and Gender Equity, every day of the year - not just on International Women’s Day.    

Our Inner West Council Gender Equity Strategy 2021 – 2025 outlines how Council is stepping up to play its part in ending gender-based violence by challenging gender stereotypes and power imbalances and advancing gender equity among our community.  
Domestic and family violence continues to permeate all facets of our community and its prevalence remains at unacceptable levels - with at least one woman a week, killed by a partner or former partner in Australia. Enough is Enough.  
Inner West Council is working to create a safe, inclusive and equal Inner West. A culture that respects the rights of women; where everyone has access to equal power, resources, opportunities and is treated with respect and fairness.  

Gender Equity is everyone’s business - learn how you can step up and play your part in promoting Gender Equity.
