International Women’s Day is 8 March – this year it’s 101 years of this celebration!
It’s an honour to be asked to speak in Gilgandra, my hometown, at the Cooee Heritage Centre. The same building that contains some of our town’s fascinating history, including our own piece of family history – my 97 year old Grandmothers WW2 Air Force uniform, beautifully displayed on a model in a glass case.
I’ve been pondering the women in my world who inspire me and cheer me on. They’re the ones who’ve gone before me, teaching, mentoring and encouraging me; those running alongside, and those who follow, eager to learn and to make a difference in their world.
Hopefully many women are able to celebrate International Women’s Day, and reflect on their own story, a thought I shared with Elizabeth Smith as she interviewed me for the article below, in The Gilgandra Weekly, 22 February edition.
YOU are more inspiring than you know!!
