If you haven't already heard, this International Women's Day Eve marks WIRE's 40th anniversary!

Together with RMIT Culture, we're going to make this milestone unforgettable with a lively and thought-provoking debate at the stunning Capitol Theatre in Melbourne!

Teaming up with RMIT, comedian and host extraordinaire Nelly Thomas will lead the celebrations on stage with a comedic thought-provoking debate titled:"The Good Old Days, Weren't That Good."

On stage debating this topic will be experts, comedians, and advocates such as Janty BlairRana HussainChris RyanMeg ElkinsYumi StynesClaire HooperGeraldine Hickey and Ro Allen weaving weaving laughter into the fabric of education and awareness, engaging in a spirited discussion on the economic security of women and gender diverse people.

Delving into the past and present, our speakers will challenge prevailing narratives, shedding light on the nuanced progress made over the years and bring joy, laughter and connection as we reflect and celebrate International Women’s Day 2024:  Count Her In: Invest in Women. Accelerate Progress. 

This event is a unique intersection of celebration and reflection, where knowledge meets entertainment, and voices are amplified. We aim to celebrate progress, acknowledge challenges, and pave the way for a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow. While we acknowledge positive changes, it's crucial to recognise that the journey towards equality has not been uniform for all women and gender diverse individuals. 

Through insightful discussions, we hope to inspire awareness and action for a more inclusive future.

So, don't miss this opportunity, get your ticket now!
