"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." (Gloria Steinem)

Collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world is key. International Women's Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance. IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.

Join us for a panel discussion on the theme of gender and intersectionality as part of International Women's Day 2019. Moderated by Professor Sue Dodds, Dean, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, four women will speak on their experiences and work in this context:

  • Sarah Cook, Director, UNSW Institute for Global Development
  • Dixie Link Gordon, Senior Community Access Officer at Women’s Legal Service NSW, Indigenous Women’s Legal Program
  • Myra Hamilton, Senior Research Fellow, Social Policy Research Centre and Lead, Gender Justice Research Programme, Australian Human Rights Institute, UNSW
  • Ayah Wehbe, Early Career Researcher, Disability Research Team, Social Policy Research Centre, UNSW
