International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women across the world and the significant social, economic and political gains made by women. The day is also a call to action, as unions continue to fight for equality and a faster rate of change to create a safer and fairer world for women and girls.
Here are some actions and events for your diary.
Women in Australia are tired of brands pink-washing their reputations on International Women’s Day. No more morning teas, no more girl-boss platitudes, no more pink logos. We demand that Corporate Australia get serious about ending gender inequality.
