Un women national committee australia
International Women’s Day is fast approaching, and the UN Women National Committee Australia is celebrating the achievements of women, in support of those who need it most.
Hosting one of the largest International Women’s Day (IWD) events around the country, the Committee aims to raise funds for UN Women projects, whilst shining a light on the actions needed to further accelerate gender equality.
The theme for 2019 is ‘More Powerful Together’, recognising the important role women, men and gender diverse peoples play to advance gender equality. It takes all of us, working in collaboration, to create a world where women and girls everywhere have equal rights and opportunities. It requires all of our participation to create a world where everyone can live a life free from violence and discrimination.
More than half a billion women in the world today live in unacceptable conditions of poverty. 1 in 3 women across the globe experience violence. The number of child brides is now estimated at 650 million. Women still earn less than men for the same work, even when they have the same abilities and experience, and they make up just 23.8% of parliaments across the world.
By attending one of the UN Women International Women’s Day events around Australia and making a donation, you will be supporting the UN Women’s work to help transform the lives of women and girls and accelerate gender equality across the globe, creating a more prosperous, peaceful, and healthier planet for everyone.
