Today is International Women`s Day.
The theme - #PressforProgress
According to the IWD Website - "there has never been a more important time to keep motivated and #PressforProgress. And with global activism for women's equality fuelled by movements like #MeToo, #TimesUp and more - there is a strong global momentum striving for gender parity"
We have several prominent wonderful women in the Great Southern. I was lucky enough to catch up with three women who make contributions to the local community in various industries.
