International Women’s Day 2019
March 10, 2019
International Women’s Day is about celebrating the social, cultural, political and economic achievements of women. It’s also a day to shine the light on the inequality women face and acts as a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
The theme for this year’s Inner West Council event was ‘More Powerful Together’ and focused on showcasing the successful women and girls living and working in the Inner West. The theme recognised 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.
The 2019 event featured the 33 incredible women who were nominated for the Inner West International Women’s Day Honour Roll. I was there to capture the evening for council.
This is International Women’s Day, 2019 . . .
