International Womens Day March

International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked on March 8 every year. It is a major day of global celebration for the economic, political and social achievements of women.

The march this year will be on Saturday 7th March, assembling at Sydney Town Hall steps at 11:30am and then making its way to Hyde Park where speakers and a series of stalls will be waiting. Check out the Amnesty International stall and take an action calling on 5 targeted MPs to allocate required funding and support for a National Plan of Action to eliminate violence against women. Join the stop violence again women network and other activists in the march this Saturday.

In partnership with local groups around NSW, the Network will also be hosting a number of smaller stalls to campaign on the need for a National Plan of Action. The following dates and locations are confirmed: Saturday 21st March in Manly, Saturday 28th March at Paddington Markets and Saturday 18th April at the Surry Hills Festival.
