A day to create a more inclusive world for women

Kororoit MP Luba Grigorovitch celebrates International Women's Day with staff and constituents.

As the Member for Kororoit, I am proud to have celebrated International Women’s Day this year with a morning tea at our electorate office in Caroline Springs.

It was a wonderful opportunity to come together and reflect on the importance of women’s rights, safe spaces, and the significance of celebrating this day. During our morning tea, amidst laughter and camaraderie, I had the privilege of presenting awards to exceptional women who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, resilience, and dedication to empowering others. It was a moment of recognition and appreciation for their tireless efforts in shaping our community.

It has been 101 years since women won their right to stand for the Victorian Parliament and for the first time ever, women make up half of the Victorian Parliament. It serves as a reminder of the progress we’ve made in advocating for gender equality and the work that still lies ahead.

The theme for International Women’s Day 2024 being celebrated this year on 8th of March is ’Inspire Inclusion’. It’s a powerful message that resonates deeply with me. When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we create a better world—one where every woman feels a sense of belonging, relevance, and empowerment.

Together, let us continue to inspire inclusion and create a more inclusive world for women. Because when women are included, our communities thrive, and our society becomes stronger!

Happy IWD everyone!
