Celebrating a million ways to be a woman online part of International Women's Day from Latrobe City Council
As part of International Women's Day, Latrobe City Council is encouraging the community to join in celebrating the contribution of women across the municipality.
The A million ways to be a woman online campaign will celebrate the diverse lives and stories of women living in Latrobe City. Latrobe City residents are encouraged to highlight the contribution of women in their community to be featured online via the Latrobe City website and on social media throughout the next month.
There are over 37,000 women living in Latrobe, and International Women's Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their diverse lives, contributions and achievements, there are "A Million Ways to be a Woman", and there are a million ways to be inspired and empowered by women
Mayor of Latrobe City, Councillor Kellie O'Callaghan said, "There are over 37,000 women living in Latrobe, and International Women's Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate their lives, contributions and achievements. There are a million ways to be a woman, and there are a million ways to be inspired and empowered by women,"
"This activity is one of the many ways that Latrobe City Council is working to support gender equality, supporting our commitment to recognising the right of all people, women, men, and people of self-described gender to be treated equally," said Cr O'Callaghan.
International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality. International Women's Day has occurred for well over a century, with the first International Women's Day gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people.
Community members are encouraged to share their nominations via the Latrobe City Council Facebook page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about A million ways to be a woman, visit the Latrobe City Council's International Women's Day website.
