Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate and recognise the achievements of women in all fields globally.
This year’s theme is #Embraceequity and we encourage everyone to take action within your own sphere of influence by challenging stereotypes, calling out discrimination, and drawing attention to bias.
Club Vice President Fiona Hocking shared the importance of IWD at St Mary’s.
“Women are traditionally underrepresented in sports, not just on the field but also in leadership positions.”
“At St Mary’s we are committed to improving gender equality across our club and know we can always do better. However, we will only create positive change if we are all in it together.”
“That’s why we’re asking all the men, women, and non-binary people at our club to take action this football and netball season to create a truly diverse and inclusive club.”
