This Friday, March 8th, we celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD); a day to reflect on how far we have come and how far we still have to go to truly achieve gender equality.
The UN Women’s global theme for IWD 2019 is ‘Think equal, build smart, innovate for change’. Australia’s IWD 2019 theme, More Powerful Together, recognises the important role we all play – as women, men, and gender diverse people. It takes all of us, working in collaboration and across that which sometimes divides us, breaking down stereotypes and gendered roles to create a world where women and girls everywhere have equal rights and opportunities.
Across the Sunshine Coast there are several events being held to celebrate this special day, including some of these in the local area listed below:
