International Women's Day
International Women's Day (IWD) is an annual celebration for Southern Women's Group Inc. IWD is enjoyed across the world each year on March 8. The day provides an opportunity for the community to recognise the achievements of women and their contribution to society. On this day, women can celebrate the progress that has been made but also contemplate those areas of women's lives where true equality has not yet been achieved.
