Come along to a celebration of extraordinary women in Hepburn Shire at the International Women's Day (IWD) Heather Mutimer Honour Roll event on Thursday 7 March at the Daylesford Town Hall. 

“Our annual event to celebrate International Women’s Day is always very popular and we expect this year will be no different,” said Mayor, Cr Brian Hood. 

“The Heather Mutimer Honour Roll was established in 2005 to pay tribute to local women whose contributions, courage and examples have led to significant social change for women,” said Cr Hood. 

“At the free evening event we will congratulate inductees, enjoy performances by students and also hear from Professor Paula Gerber, who is a leading expert on international human rights law, with a particular focus on children’s rights and the rights of LGBTIQA+ people,” he said. 

“Everyone is invited to join us at the Daylesford Town Hall from 6pm on Thursday 7 March.”

The theme for IWD 2024 is Count Her In: Invest in women. Accelerate Progress. Nominations for the next round of honour roll inductees will open in August.
