“Embrace Equity” for International Women’s Day

7 March, 2023

Today, 8 March is International Women’s Day (IWD) – a global day of celebration that recognises the social, economic and political achievements of women.

IWD is also a day of action, as unions continue to fight for equality and a faster rate of change to create a safer and fairer world for women and girls.

72% of the IEU’s 75,000 members nationally are women. Our teachers and school support staff have a unique role to play in the education of girls and our collective commitment to deliver greater gender equality in education, in our workplaces and in the broader community.

While we will take time to celebrate the courage and determination of women who have changed history, IEU members will also strive to find ways to unite and mobilise for the urgent changes still needed if our community is to fully #EmbraceEquity.
