Women are amazing, so was lunch

On Friday I got in early and celebrated International Women's Day.

I've been lucky enough to attend IWD celebrations over the last ten years and always come away feeling very proud of some inspiring women, those, who against the odds rise up and fight for what is right. Whether it be for the good of all women by changing laws or society or just for themselves by escaping domestic violence.

Unfortunately I was reminded that amongst other things, women still earn 17% less per week than men.

That's a lot of shoes.

If you feel like an informative, interesting, inspiring read, here is Mary Kostakidis' speech from the lunch. It is lengthy, but well worth it.
