Leave no woman behind.

Together we can empower women across the globe.

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on March 8th. You can find our events across Australia listed below along with further information and links to purchase tickets. 

Our theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is “Leave no woman behind”, examining the vital role that women play in humanitarian and disaster planning and response. Each of our events will explore the impacts disasters have on women and girls, and highlight the important roles that women play in risk reduction, rebuilding, rehabilitation and peace processes.

Why are women and girls 14 times more likely to die or be injured in the wake of a natural disaster? Following the Boxing Day tsunami, a simple lesson shook us all: many girls didn’t know how to climb trees. Boys did. Climbing to safety, more boys survived than did girls. This is only one example of how gendered roles and action can mean the difference between life and death. There are many more.

Women’s knowledge and expertise as leaders, planning for and responding to disasters and conflict can help protect and empower women and girls so that they can survive and thrive.

By attending an International Women’s Day (IWD) event and making a donation, you support UN Women’s work to transform the lives of women and girls in our region, for the better.
