Like many members in the chamber who have acknowledged and supported International Women's Day, I attended a number of events to mark this occasion.
One of the events I had great pleasure in being involved with was an International Women's Day breakfast that I hosted for a group of 200 schoolgirls here in Queen's Hall.
The occasion was organised by the Alliance of Girls Schools Australasia. Those 200 girls were terrific.
They asked some very pertinent questions of the guest speaker, Debra Knight, who is the managing director of Crivelli Fine Coffee.
She retold some insightful experiences, including challenges she faced through her university life and into her career.
I am sure many of the girls would have benefited from that.
