The Midland Information, Debt & Legal Advocacy Service Inc (MIDLAS) was delighted to be a part of Funds for Freedom’s 2013 International Women’s Day celebrations in Perth on Friday, 8th March 2013 at the luxurious Duxton Hotel. MIDLAS was thrilled with the uptake, and indeed the interest from the entire community out in force to “celebrate the achievements of women while remaining vigilant and tenacious for further sustainable change.” In fact, Australia is hosting nearly 200 registered International Women’s Day events across the country, falling only behind the UK (418) and the USA (211), an impressive commitment to a wonderful cause for a country with little over 20 million people.
At this year’s event, Funds For Freedom arranged for Diana Warnock, who is Patron for Women’s Council for Domestic & Family Violence Services to present. Diana was named Australian Humanist of the Year in 1999 and is an inaugural entrant to the WA Women’s Hall of Fame. It was inspiring to hear from Diana and the work she is involved in, not just for the benefit of women, but for all members of society.| | | Next → |
