International Women's Day

by Sally Foster (follow)
It is a very inspiring time to be a woman. With so much spotlight in the media lately on strong women speaking out against sexual harassment and unfair treatment, and the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements exploding, there is no better year to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Held on 8th March, it is a day to reflect on our achievements as women, and speak about how far we still have to go to have gender parity.

To read more about International Women’s Day and what this day means, go to the website. It is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The theme for 2018 is #PressForProgress.

Brisbane has many events this year for International Women’s Day. I have listed just two that stood out to me the most below. For more events visit Eventbrite or IWD Website.

Events include high teas, debates, lunches and markets. Some are free and others can be quite expensive. Most of the profits go to charity though.

If you know of any other events in your local area, please share in the comments.

1. International Women's Day Fun Run

The International Women's Day Fun Run is an event run to support women with breast cancer by raising funds for Mater Chicks in Pink. There are 5km and 10km options available and it is run on Sunday 4th March. There are no on the day registrations so be sure to register your support now if you are interested.

2. International Women's Day Breakfast

One Woman Project is hosting a breakfast at Darling & Co at Paddington on 11th March. One Woman Project is a youth-lead, registered non-for-profit organisation focused upon education about and advocacy promoting gender equality. Tickets are $40 and the event will feature a panel of women pushing for equality. Tickets can be purchased here

If neither of these events take your interest, then why not get a group of your friends together and have your own celebration. Host a high tea or lunch of your own and speak about being a woman in 2018 and your achievements and struggles.
