Compassion + International Women’s Day - Melbourne
When: March 7 2019
Where: Melbourne, Australia
Gather the ladies in your life to find out how together, we can empower girls and women living in poverty. This International Women’s Day, we’ll be sharing inspirational stories about what everyday women have achieved, while also looking at some challenges women and girls around the world are facing.
Every day, thousands of girls and women will be assaulted, abused, discriminated against, neglected and denied their rights. Often, this will happen for no other reason than the fact that they are female.
We know empowering girls is an effective way to reduce poverty. Each additional year of education of a girl leads to social and economic change. We invite you to come and hear from Melinda Tankard Reist who will highlight poverty from a local, national and global viewpoint and what we are able to achieve together as a collective of women.
