Two women-led local businesses are teaming up to kick off your IWD with mindfulness and empowering discussion. Bring along your yoga mat, Wei-Yee from Yoga on Earth will start off the morning with an all-levels yoga session. Then you’ll be nourished with a soothing cup of chai and a wholesome treat from the Chai Walli bar, before the tea and spice brand’s founder, Uppma Virdi, opens the floor for an interactive discussion about what is actually means to make the choice to challenge and what we can do in our lives to achieve gender parity. This event takes place from 7-8.30am at theMungo Scott Building, next to the Summer Hill lightrail stop. Tickets are $30 and you can grab them here.
In 2021, International Women's Day takes place on Monday, March 8 with the theme #choosetochallenge. It has become a rallying point for women around the world to come together, celebrate, and rise in solidarity against the ever-mutating challenges we continue to face in the modern world.
Feminism takes many forms, and each female-identifying person should feel like they can celebrate IWD in a way that truly explores their experience. To that end, we’ve selected our pick of the best events taking place in Sydney this International Women's Day, from talks and seminars to theatre productions and cultural walks.
