International Women's Day takes place on Wednesday 8 March, and is a global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.

The theme for this year’s occasion is “Embrace Equity”, and we’re inviting you to Embrace Equity with us at a special breakfast being hosted by City of Boroondara.
