Clear the Stage! For International Women's Day 2023: A Webinar

Listen to our ‘Clear the Stage’ webinar to mark International Women’s Day for 2023.

This year, we’ve invited three incredible young women from lutruwita/Tasmania to set the agenda and talk about what’s important to them in their lives, work, and activism. This is a chance to celebrate the achievements of young women in our state and to hear their ideas and visions for the future.
