Sydney International Women's Day March and Rally on Saturday 11 March 2017

February 23, 2017

Unions NSW will be coordinating the 2017 Sydney International Women's Day March and Rally on Saturday March 11. This year’s theme is “Forwards Not Backwards”, drawing attention to the many ways that gender equality appears to slipping, particularly in the area of health, economics, representation and safety.

Date: Saturday March 11
Time: 10am
Location: Archibald Fountain, Hyde Park North

Come along to hear from women about the progress that has been made in gender parity and the vast amount of work that there is left to do. Speeches begin at 10am and the march commences at 11am. The march route will be from the Archibald Fountain in Hyde Park, down Castlereagh Street and then Liverpool Street to Tumbalong Park in Darling Harbour.

Members are encouraged to wear Gonski shirts or their favourite Teachers Federation campaign shirt and walk with us under the NSW Teachers Federation flag.

More information on the march can be found at the IWD Sydney Facebook pages
