Women in Campbelltown will be able to enjoy a host of free community events as part of International Women’s Day celebrations from Monday 7 March to Sunday 13 March.
This year’s International Women’s Day theme is #BreakTheBias and encourages people to work collectively for a gender-equal world.
There are a range of events for women to get involved in throughout the week including workshops, yoga sessions and more.
“International Women’s Day is a time for us to celebrate those women in our city who make a difference, not only in our community but also in our everyday lives,” Mayor George Greiss said.
“Throughout Campbelltown’s history, we have had many great women contribute to building up our city into the place it is today. This is an opportunity for us to celebrate and remember those contributions while also acknowledging the women who are continuing that legacy today,” Cr Greiss said.
The stories of four women who have been part of the story and fabric of the Macarthur region will be showcased as part of Women of Macarthur: Stories from the past, a free presentation at the HJ Daley Library on Wednesday 9 March from 10am to 11am.
Campbelltown Arts Centre will host Down to Earth, an International Women’s Week Special Event where local women can listen to the stories of local artists and learn clay art with the Macarthur Ceramic Network on Friday 11 March from 5pm to 7pm.
