Council is committed to ensuring that all members of the community have the same access to services, programs and resources as others.

Council acknowledges the diversity of women's lives, experiences and priorities as part of this commitment. Council's integrated and strategic planning processes identify issues for women living in the Marrickville area across a wide range of planning and strategy documents.

Council's Community Strategic Plan identified the following key issues:

  • Encourage the inclusion of women's issues across the full range of plans, policies and operations developed by Council and its partner organisations;
  • Continue to foster and encourage women to explore leadership opportunities;
  • Continue to organise an annual celebration of International Women's Day.

International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated on 8 March each year, honouring women's achievements. It is a time to celebrate the gains women have made over the years and to bring attention to the issues that women still face.
