On this International Women’s Day, it’s time to throw away the rules.
Gone are the days when women were not invited into typically male activities or industries.
And it’s on view as part of Campbelltown’s International Women’s Day program.
Following the theme of #BreakTheBias, the council organized a host of activities to celebrate all different types of femininity.
In addition to yoga and board games, there’s a car service shop, robotics, and even Dungeons and Dragons sessions.
The goal is to work collectively towards an egalitarian world.
Campbelltown Mayor George Brticevic said it’s time to recognize all of our local women.
“International Women’s Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate these women in our city who are making a difference, not only in our community, but also in our daily lives,” he said.
“Throughout Campbelltown’s history, many wonderful women have helped make our town what it is today.
“This is an opportunity for us to celebrate and remember those contributions while recognizing the women who carry on that legacy today.”
The stories of four women who have been part of the history and fabric of the Macarthur region will be featured as part of Women of Macarthur: Stories from the past, a free presentation at the HJ Daley Library on Wednesday, March 9 from 10 a.m. at 11 o’clock. .
