Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) is the Government Partner of UN Women Australia’s International Women’s Day campaign. International Women’s Day, held on 8 March each year, is an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women around the world. It is also a time to reflect on the significant challenges that remain in realising equality between men and women across the world.
UN Women Australia has worked closely with the DFAT for over a decade to deliver a successful suite of International Women’s Day events. Australia remains a firm and persistent advocate and practical supporter of gender equality through its international development assistance program.
