International Women's Day

iwd_square.gifInternational 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”.

As part of our 2017 International Women’s Day celebrations, chapters are asked to support a collective culture in school workplaces by organising chapter activities such as:
  • hold a celebratory Morning Tea on Wednesday 8 March 2017;
  • provide a photo of chapter celebrations for Independent Voice and/or union website (photos can be emailed to communications@qieu.asn.au); 
  • urge your colleagues to join us (or to renew their union membership);
  • Join our union’s Equity Committee.  
Happy International Women’s Day!
