LETTER TO THE EDITOR - International Women’s Day

Friday, March 1, 2024

Our community is full of extraordinary women doing amazing things.

So often we see women whose achievements, leadership, and contributions don’t get the recognition they deserve.

International Women’s Day is this Friday, and it’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate the work women do to better the lives of people in their community, work, and homes.

With that being said, there are still barriers for women, particularly in rural and regional areas.

Extreme childcare shortages are keeping women in more traditional roles, with women often having to sacrifice employment opportunities to be a full-time caregiver.

Maternal health is another challenging area for women in our communities.

Everyone deserves safe healthcare close to their home but sadly this is not always an option.

Thank you to all the wonderful women in our community and happy International Women’s Day.
