International Women's Day #EachForEqual

AN EQUAL WORLD IS an enabled world – that’s the message for this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD). We all have the individual power to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Get out there, shout from the rooftops and celebrate the women in your life and across the world. The Top End has plenty of inspiring events and ways to show and share strength and solidarity to help create an equal world.

Oh, and wear purple!
