International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is celebrated around the world on 8 March and its purpose is to commemorate the movement for women's rights. The day is a celebration of the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women, and also serves as a call-to-action to progress gender parity.

The 2019 IWD campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter which is designed to shine a spotlight on building a gender-balanced world, and the fact everyone has a part to play.

The City of Maribyrnong is commemorating International Women’s Day through a number of activities and events that celebrate and honour not only the achievements of women everywhere, but also shines a light on the outstanding women in our community who help to make every day feel like International Women’s Day.
