With company policies like affirmative action, maternity leave and blind recruitment helping to combat the pay gap and the glass ceiling, Australia is making progress towards equal representation of genders in business. While there is still considerable progress to be made, it seems that the importance of feminism is now more widely embraced than ever. Now, it is not the question of whether we’ll achieve equality in the future, but how we’ll achieve it.

This year’s International Women's Day campaign theme is #BalanceforBetter. From grassroots activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance. We notice its absence and celebrate it’s presence.

A lively debate not to be missed

IML IWD Jo Stanley

Since being discovered performing stand-up in a dingy Collingwood pub over 15 years ago, the warm and vibrant Jo Stanley has risen to become a household name - and for good reason!

Jo rose to fame in 2003 as one half of The Matt & Jo Show. Together with funnyman Matt Tilley, Jo enjoyed 10 successful years of breakfast radio. Soon after, Jo became the co-host of Weekend Breakfast, broadcasting to 52 stations nationally. In early 2016, she joined the breakfast team at GOLD 104.3, alongside Anthony Lehmann, becoming Jo & Lehmo for Breakfast - Melbourne's number 1 FM breakfast radio show.

Over the years, Jo has also graced our screens on shows like Channel Ten’s The Project, The Circle, Good News Week, The Panel and Australia’s Brainiest Quiz Show, as well as Channel 7’s SlideShow, Good as Gold, Thank God You’re Here, Sunday Brunch and Channel Nine’s Clever. Since 2013, Jo can also be seen making regular appearances on Network Ten’s breakfast show, Studio 10.

At present, Jo can be found writing her hilarious and heartwarming columns for Sunday Life Magazine and On top of her frequent newspaper columns, Jo has also recently written and published several books, including fiction series ‘Play Like A Girl’ - a celebration of Aussie girls kicking goals in the sport they love.
