International Women’s Day
One of the most important days of the year for all VIEW Clubs around Australia is International Women's Day (IWD) celebrated on March 8.
As a leading national women's organisation, VIEW Clubs across the country joined in celebrations to mark the achievements of women with IWD functions throughout March. The events were a great opportunity for Clubs to join together with representatives from The Smith Family and prominent women in the community to celebrate women and learn more about The Smith Family's work with disadvantaged students. This year's theme 'Be Bold for Change' calling for everyone to help forge a better working world - a more inclusive, gender equal world.
VIEW Club members spent months planning their events and inviting and attracting interesting guest speakers including well-known journalist and author, Geraldine Doogue; Master Chef winner, Jules Allen; South Australian 2014 Person of the Year, Dr Felicity Anne Lewis, and Rosie Batty, Australian of the Year 2015, to name just a few.
There will be other significant International Women’s Day events in all states, please keep a look out for flyers about these events in upcoming correspondence and check the website regularly.
