Plan an event

On 8 March, what better way to celebrate International Women's Day than to recognise the contribution of women in your network or community. Use our toolkit and resources to get started.

The theme for International Women's Day 2019 is #BalanceforBetter.

One of the ways you can help balance gender in Australian Honours, is to nominate a woman. 

Men have consistently received around 70% of the awards since the Order of Australia was established in 1975. Women receive less than one third of award nominations.

A fun way to nominate is to run your own International Women's Day event.

You can order an event pack from the International Women's Day website which helps to save time and make your event an instant success. The pack includes posters, pins, pens, balloons and bunting.
