Celebrate International Womens Day

By Joy V and Casey P

On Thursday 8 March, Melbourne and the world will be celebrating International Women's Day (IWD).  With so much to do and think about on this day, the AWA wants to make sure that our members find ways to think globally and act locally!

This year's theme is #PressforProgress with the hashtag emphasising solidarity and continuity with the #MeToo and #TimesUp women's movements - both of which launched globally from social media platforms.  IWD's #Pressfor Progress callout is meant to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

Therefore, the AWA suggests that our membership, as American expat women (or those who are closely related to/working with us) might find the following Melbourne IWD activities and organisation engaging and informative:

Thursday, 8 March - International Women's Day

  • IWD Breakfast for Entrepreneurs - 8am - 9:30am, CBD.  Listen to five female industry leaders share their big ideas and workshop how to actualise your own startup.
  • IWD March - 5:30-7:30pm, State Library of Victoria.  Join people from all over Melbourne, as we take to the streets and march together for solidarity for equal rights!
  • IWD Celebrating Women in Music - 7:30pm- midnight, The John Curtin Hotel Carlton.  Celebrating and raising monies for all types of musical women.
Other events during the week
