International Women's Day Luncheon

  

The International Women's Day luncheon held at Burswood on Swan was a wonderful event in absolutely beautiful

surroundings with magnificent food and service. 

Her Excellency The Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC Governor of Western Australia was an inspirational speaker

highlighting issues regarding aboriginal women and their families as well as areas where gender inequality remains today.

Her Excellency's experience as governor enhanced her knowledge of contemporary issues to raise on International

Women's Day. 

Thank you Your Excellency
