International Women's Day
International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
The theme for this year’s event is ‘More Powerful Together’ and will focus on showcasing the successful women living and working in the Inner West. The theme recognises the important role women, men and gender diverse peoples play to advance gender equality. It takes all of us, working in collaboration, to break down stereotypes and gendered roles to create a world where women and girls everywhere have equal rights and opportunities.
