Ways to Support and Fundraise

There are a number of ways to become involved in International Women’s Day, fundraise for UN Women Australia and join the movement to accelerate gender equality.

By supporting the event program and raising funds in your workplace, school or community group, you are enabling UN Women to:

  • Develop women as leaders in the community, politics and businesses;
  • Run voter and civic education campaigns on gender equality;
  • Encourage young men and women to engage in advocacy to make gender equality central to public policy-making;
  • Promote women’s rights, including their right to vote and to violence-free campaigning;
  • Advance gender equality.
