International Women's Day celebrated in the Hawkesbury

International Women’s Day will be celebrated in the Hawkesbury tomorrow with a special event held at the North Richmond Community Centre, 33 William street, North Richmond.

The event will include a movie screening of ‘Hidden Figures’, morning tea, guest speakers and child care.

March 8 sees the annual IWD campaign theme kick off for the year ahead, although many groups around the world adopt and promote the campaign theme from early in the year.

The IWD campaign theme provides a unified direction to guide and galvanize collective action. The campaign theme does not end on International Women's Day, it starts. 

This year’s theme is #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.

The IWD event in North Richmond starts at 10am.
