INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY WAS A SUCCESS!
SheSociety celebrated all things female, hosting a lunch on International Women’s Day. With the theming this year surrounding “Press for Progress”, the day celebrated equality and created discussion around the impact of campaigns such as “Time’s Up” and “Me Too”.
The lunch was hosted by the wonderful Sharyn Ghidella, and funds raised from the raffles were donated to The Allison Baden-Clay Foundation. Allison’s mother Priscilla and sister Vanessa were present on the day and announced that the Foundation will be joining forces with Griffith University’s MATE Bystander Program.
Assistant Director of the Bystander Program, Anoushka Dowling, was the guest speaker for the day. Her speech was powerful, reflecting on her life of being judged for her race, skin colour, being adopted and for her gender. Her past experiences encouraged her work within the Bystander Program. Their work looks at everyone as being a bystander and educates people on how to be a leader and to stand up against domestic violence and discrimination.

The online world isn’t 100% safe and it never will be, however, it is always really important to take certain measures to ensure that we are always protected. In the wake of the latest Facebook security breach, there really isn’t anything you could have done differently except NOT be on the social platform.
