International Women's Day
While trail-blazing women have achieved a great deal in the last century, many struggles lay ahead in achieving gender equality. Whether it be in the education of girls in the developing world, tackling violence against women, or securing opportunities in global leadership, women in Australia and the world are rightly demanding better.
This International Women’s Day, to be held on 8 March, the world will celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, and take the time to reflect on what lays ahead. To mark the occasion, Policy Forum has launched this special In Focus: International Women’s Day section to shine a light on the state of gender equality in Australia and the region, and invite authors to discuss the various issues policymakers face in achieving it.
Readers, we encourage you to join the discussion, and share your thoughts on all the policy progress yet to come.
