What is #CelebrateVicWomen?

International Women’s Day is a time to celebrate all Victorian women, in all their diversity.

Women of all backgrounds and identities make incredible contributions to life in Victoria.

#CelebrateVicWomen is both an opportunity to recognise these contributions and a call to action to break the biases that prevent women from accessing equal opportunities economically, in the workforce and in public life.

This International Women’s Day, we encourage you to celebrate the remarkable women in your life and think about the ways that we can each break the biases that contribute to gender inequality in Victoria.

What is International Women’s Day?

International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated globally on 8 March. IWD is an opportunity for people and organisations to reflect on women’s contributions at all levels of society and galvanise efforts towards gender equality for women and girls around the world.

How are we celebrating Victorian women?

This year, we’re celebrating women from all walks of life working for Victorian communities in the public sector and beyond.

The women profiled in this series are blazing trails in their chosen fields, shattering gendered myths about women leaders, and opening the door for future generations to follow in their footsteps. Watch their stories below.
