International Women’s Day

Celebrating International Women’s Day

On the 8th March 2023, the world turns its attention to celebrate the achievements of women. Here in Australia, this day has been an important day for our culture for almost 100 years. However, the United Nations continue to promote gender equity as a primary sustainability goal, acknowledging that we have a long way to go in seeing a world where women have ongoing equal human rights and opportunities. In fact, at this current rate, it will take another 286 years to close the global gender gap.

100 Women as a charity, focus every day on the health, education, safety and empowerment of women and girls around the world. Our vision is to bring together a group of like minded individuals that share this goal of gender equality for generations to come who are passionate about facilitating real change.

Our members are the leaders, the change makers, the teachers and the visionaries, that are making their voice and their choice count for gender equity. Our members are also everyday people – just like you.

This is the power of collective giving. So why not choose this International Women’s Day to join our community, and make a real difference to the lives of women and girls that need it most?
