“On International Women’s Day, we hold hands together with the women of the world”
March 1, 2019
International Women’s Day is a time for worldwide solidarity and celebration. On March 8, we proudly acknowledge the women who came before us and reflect on the work required to achieve gender equality for all.
Need some inspiration to get started with your celebrations? We asked five women leaders from our partners at the Nazareth Centre for Rehabilitation (NCfR) and Eastern Highlands Family Voice (EHFV) in Papua New Guinea what International Women’s Day means to them. The team at NCfR are responding to gender-based violence through safe houses, counselling and referrals in Bougainville. EHFV also works on issues of gender-based violence through direct counselling, referral services and paralegal advice. Together, these organisations are shaping communities where women and children live free from violence.
