More Voices, More Representation at International Women’s Day
A campaign aiming to make International Women’s Day a celebration of all women equally, by elevating underrepresented, underserved, minoritised and racialised women and non-binary voices.
In 2023, we want to help create an International Women’s Day that has greater intersectional representation to help change the narrative. By driving constructive and community-led action on providing platforms to more intersectional voices this IWD, we aim to help IWD become truly about celebrating all women.
The More Voices, More Representation at International Women’s Day collaboration aims to build and deliver a campaign that incorporates intersectionality at the core of IWD and beyond. The goal of the campaign is to champion underrepresented, underserved, minoritised and racialised women and non-binary voices across the various events, panels, and media coverage surrounding this day.
The More Voices, More Reprensentation collaboration brings together 25 purpose-driven organisations and advocates to drive this campaign and elevate more voices this International Women’s Day.
This eBook covers the collaboration’s recent research uncovering whether women currently feel represented at IWD, why each partner got on board, why representation at IWD matters to them, and some resources for women looking to drive and be part of the change in their communities and workplaces.
About the campaign
Our survey of 419 Australian women found 83% of women of colour do not feel represented at International Women’s Day, only 27% of Aboriginal women felt IWD in past years had celebrated or honoured them, and 75% of women with a disability said there was no representation of their community on IWD.
