Women to be celebrated at Yulong Stud event

The event will begin at 9.45am where guest will enjoy morning tea in the breezeway of the stud’s Barn 2.

This will be followed by a parade of the stud’s horses for guests to enjoy.

Strathbogie Shire Council Mayor Cr Laura Binks said International Women’s Day provided an opportunity for everyone to reflect and celebrate the role women play in the world.

“As a woman in local government, I continue to be mentored and inspired by the women in this field who have come before me,” Cr Binks said.

“Pam Robinson OAM, Shire President of Violet Town when I was a young child, has encouraged me in nominating for both council and mayor.

“Pam’s founding role with Landcare and her commitment to representation and equality in government is an inspiration and I am grateful to have grown up with this example of strong female leadership.”

Cr Binks said she hoped the current Strathbogie Shire Council could inspire more women, gender-diverse and young people of all abilities to consider standing for council in the future.

“If we are to govern in a representative way, we need to ensure that people of all backgrounds are supported and mentored to participate,” she said.

International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on March 8 and this year’s campaign theme is #BreakTheBias.

There are several ways you can get involved in the day – a global movement celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
