UN Women National Committee Australia would like to extend a thank you to everyone who participated in our International Women’s Day celebrations in 2016. We couldn’t be more proud to see so many people join us in solidarity on the road to achieving gender equality and supporting women’s empowerment.
In particular, a warm thank you must go to all of our speakers, especially Muniba Mazari and Aleta Miller, for travelling from Pakistan and the Pacific to speak at our events.
For those of you who were fortunate to hear these powerful advocates speak at International Women’s day events, the message they shared was clear. Women’s empowerment doesn’t just benefit women, it benefits everyone.
UN Women NC Australia is grateful to our speakers for sharing their wisdom and insight, to our partners, including the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Aurizon, Esprit and PwC for supporting these events.
We look forward to continuing to work with you all to ensure women around the world have choice, opportunity, and can live free from violence.
Happy International Women’s Day.
