This International Women's Day, you can be part of a nation-wide effort to empower women and girls and end poverty. Today, 67% of women living in Papua New Guinea experience violence and access to services and support remains extremely limited.

By attending one of UN Women Australia’s International Women's Day events, you will help UN Women to expand its critical services program for women experiencing violence in PNG. We all have a right to live free from violence.

Join us in March to celebrate the role that women play in our communities and workplaces and to raise much needed funds to end violence against women.

The UN Women Australia Adelaide International Women's Day Breakfast 2013 is hosted by Senator Penny Wong. The guest speaker will be Dr Anne Summers AO.
