International Women’s Day with Jamila Rizvi
Baw Baw Shire Council and Women in Gippsland have joined forces to celebrate and recognise the stories of women with a dynamic International Women’s Day event.
Keynote speaker Jamila Rizvi – author, political and social commentator and named one of Australia’s 100 Women of Influence by the Australian Financial Review – will headline the event, supported by stories from inspiring local women.
The theme for International Women’s Day in 2020 is Each for Equal, encouraging all women and men to actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, improve gender equity and celebrate women’s achievements.
Tickets are just $14 in recognition of Australia’s national gender pay gap of 14 per cent. The event will run from 7pm to 9pm with doors opening earlier for networking.
Proceeds from the event will be divided equally between Women in Gippsland, to activate more local events, and Our Watch Our Issue, an organisation that aims to tackle the issue of family violence.
