Call for indigenous women
IPSWICH residents are being called on to nominate unsung indigenous women for a special online gallery celebrating the centenary of International Women’s Day this year.
The Everyday Women, Extraordinary Lives online tribute gallery showcases the stories and pictures of the women who make Queensland such a great state.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Minister Desley Boyle said right across Queensland, indigenous women were making big contributions as mothers, daughters, role models, volunteers, employers and employees.
“If you know an everyday indigenous woman living an extraordinary life then I encourage you to provide their story and a photo for the tribute gallery,” Ms Boyle said.
Ten women will also be chosen from the Everyday Women, Extraordinary Lives tribute gallery to attend a special event with Premier Anna Bligh on International Women’s Day, being celebrated on March 8.
