Echoing this year’s theme for International Women’s Day (IWD), “Invest in Women!”, an array of events kick off in the first week of March to engage, champion and advocate for the voices of women from diverse perspectives.

Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Women’s Centre (QVWC) presents a panel led by journalist Wendy Tuohy on 4 March, joined by Emma Dawson (Per Capita), Wil Stracke (Victorian Trades Hall Council), Nadia Mattiazzo (Women with Disabilities Victoria) and Jenny Davidson (Council of Single Mothers and their Children). Tuohy will guide the discussion on why it makes economic sense to invest in women and highlight the key issues women face in achieving economic equity.
