Description

The Minister for Women’s Interests, Hon Simone McGurk MLA, invites you to a special event to mark the 80th anniversary of the very first International Women’s Day event held in Western Australia.

Join the Hon Simone McGurk MLA and four remarkable speakers who will discuss how they continue to ‘press for progress’ in their chosen disciplines. The speakers reflect the original International Women's Day meeting in 1938 when Dr Roberta Jull spoke with Katharine Susannah Prichard (nee Throssell) author; Mary ‘Molly’ Kingston (nee Connor), lawyer; and Irene Greenwood, broadcaster and activist.
