International Women's Day
International Women’s Day is held annually on 8 March — a day that has long been observed as an opportunity for asserting equality for women’s social, political and working rights.
International Women’s Day (IWD) provides women, often divided by national boundaries and cultural, economic and political differences with an opportunity to come together to discuss issues and celebrate achievements. It is also a day that challenges all Australians to decide the quality of the legacy to be passed onto future generations of working women.
On Tuesday 8 March Chapters are encouraged to demonstrate their support for the theme of “Empower a Woman, Empower a Nation”.
