In addition to a large contingent from the Rotary Club of Brighton, we sponsored students from Brighton Secondary College to attend the International Women’s Day breakfast at Crown Palladium last Wednesday.
Inspiring speakers, vigorous debate and delicious food were the order of the day as Rotary clubs across Australia and New Zealand celebrated International Women’s Day 2016. However, while women’s achievements were front and centre, clubs on both sides of the Tasman acknowledged the need for greater gender diversity in Rotary and all areas of business.
There’s a wonderful feeling of freedom and security in being able to breathe normally, without fear and without anguish.
Sadly, three in ten Australian women have felt suffocated by physical, emotional or sexual abuse at the hands their partner.
Colleen Hewett’s powerful anthem ‘Let me Breathe' has been generously donated to Violence Free Families to help raise awareness and much needed funds.
