Event description

Description

Join us to celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, and to launch our campaign for the 2020 Local Government elections.

Our vision is for 50 per cent women councillors by 2020 - with your help, we can make it a reality!

We will also be launching the 6th edition of our campaign resource, A Gender Agenda, and our campaigning toolkit.

We're excited to announce that Dr Andrea Carson will be launching our campaign. Andrea is an Associate Professor of Communication and Media at La Trobe University who writes and commentates about Australian politics. She was a facilitator of the Pathways to Politics for Women program at the Melbourne School of Government and has undertaken research into gender bias against female politicians.

There will also be a performance from the wonderful Queenie van de Zandt, who is one of the country's best musical theatre performers.

Kensington Town Hall has excellent disability access and facilities, with disability parking directly outside the venue on Bellair Street.

A certified Auslan interpreter will provide Auslan/English interpreting.

The VLGA acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the country throughout Victoria and recognises their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners, their elders, past, present and future and to their cultures.

Light lunch provided.
