Thursday 8 March, 10am-10pm

The Riverfront is proud to host International Womens Day 2018
Across the world, women are making positive gains, day by day. There's a strong and growing global movement of advocacy, activism and support, but we can't be complacent. Now, more than ever, there's a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity. A call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive. Collectively, let's all Press for Progress.
 

With an inspirational female focus, we will be offering activities, workshops, demonstrations, performances, discussions and guest speakers, including our Key Note Speech delivered by Natalie Cutler from EntreprenHER Productions. We will also be showing Natalie's award winning documentary film 'Not In Vain' as well as starring in her one woman live show Not Yet Suffragette.  EntreprenHER Productions was created as a platform to tell female focussed stories By Women, For Women, About Women through the mediums of Theatre, TV and Film


 "The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights." Gloria Steinham
