Local Health District celebrates International Women’s Day

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

To celebrate this special day, multiple local agencies and the Dubbo Women's Health Program at Western NSW Local Health District  is holding a very special event and invites everyone to come along on 8 March at 10:30am to Western Plains Cultural Centre Courtyard in Dubbo.

The documentary 'Girl Rising' will be shown at 12pm at the Cultural Centre theatre. 'Girl Rising' is an inspiring film following the story of nine girls from the developing world and their everyday struggle for freedom, education and a voice.

Western NSW Local Health Women's Health Nurse, Jessie Locke encourages everyone to come along and help celebrate this special day.

“It will be a fun morning with local dancers, singers and food from around the world. Gargi Ganguly from the Dubbo community will be the event guest speaker," Ms Locke said.

The Western NSW Local Health District will also be providing a Women's Health stall with free information on reproductive and sexual health.

It is FREE and we encourage everyone to come and support this local event.
