March Celebrates Women

March was a momentous month for celebrating the achievements and progress of women. It commenced with the globally recognised International Women’s Day, a day dedicated to honouring the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the world.

Adding to the momentum, the State Government launched the Queensland Women and Girls’ Health Strategy, underscoring its commitment to the health and wellbeing of women across the region. This strategic initiative aims to address critical health issues affecting women and girls and to promote holistic approaches to healthcare.

Furthermore, grants were introduced to invest in women-led projects that focus on crucial family issues, health and wellbeing programs, and initiatives aimed at addressing barriers experienced by women and girls in various sectors. These grants also aim to support women’s participation in sports, advance safety measures, improve access to education, and enhance economic opportunities for women and girls across Queensland.

These grants are designed to empower community groups and organisations in urban, rural, and remote regions to lead projects and events that foster positive change for women and girls. By providing resources and support, these initiatives aim to create a more inclusive and equitable society where women and girls can thrive in all aspects of life.
