International Women’s Day morning tea
The Fraser Coast is now on the map of centres joining the National Rural Women’s Coalition to celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day on Tuesday, 8 March 2011.
The National Rural Women’s Coalition has invited women across the country to join them at a Morning Tea and Interactive Webinar with ABC radio and television host, Geraldine Doogue.
The morning teas will be linked together by webcams.
Fraser Coast Regional Councillor Belinda McNeven has enthusiastically taken up the charge to celebrate.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Women of the Fraser Coast to meet in Maryborough and hear from Geraldine Doogue as well as other women from across Australia. International Women’s Day is all about working together – we are looking forward to the women of the Fraser Coast sharing their stories.”
The morning tea will connect women across the country to provide a unique opportunity for women in rural, regional and remote areas to network and learn about the National Rural Women’s Coalition’s latest initiative – the National Rural Women’s Network.
Belinda said that it was fantastic to have an event of this calibre being organised on our doorstep and congratulated the National Rural Women’s Network on the great work they do.
Cr McNeven said “It’s great to see Maryborough on the map with the other areas across Australia that are joining in the morning tea.” Those locations can be seen at
