Celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) with a free online panel discussion on 10 March.

That week will be exactly one year since we started to hear, ‘Stand here.’ ‘Stay home’…for all our sakes’.

2020 shone a bright light on how we live, and the many inequities that affect women’s lives. But it also offered opportunities, moments of connection. It had the potential to be the year that changed us all.

This online 2021 IWD Forum, will be an opportunity to hear an extraordinary group of Tasmanian women talk about their experiences of 2020, and what they see for our future.

The forum will be opened by the Hon. Sarah Courtney MP, Minister for Health and Minister for Women.

Hear stories, connect, share challenges…and look forward towards change.

Kim Dobromilksy is an Obstetrician and Gynaecologist based at the North West Private Hospital (Burnie).

Kartanya Maynard is a Trawlwoolway (Tas), Kaurna and Ngadjuri (SA) woman. She is a musician and actor.
