International Women's Day

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women's Day is a national holiday – and here at Marrickville Council we celebrate the achievements of local women throughout the community.
