International Women's Day

In light of International Women’s Day next month, I spoke in the Assembly today in full support of empowering women to reach their potential. As a Liberal, I am deeply committed to the rights of the individual and believe in the great human freedoms: freedom to worship, to think, to speak, to be industrious, to acquire skills, etc.

In my speech, I paid tribute to some residents and organisations that are doing important things to help empower women: Migrant and Refugee Settlement Services, Sophie Fisher and her Girls on Bikes program, Dr Madhumita Iyengar and her Women in Need program, and Westfield Belconnen’s 2019 Local Heroes: Camille Scholoeffel, Hannah Andrevski, and Natalie Malcolmson.
