Save our Working Women's Centres!

Currently, the NT Working Women’s Centre is at risk of closure and Working Women Queensland does not receive enough funding to operate fully.

If we can show governments how Working Women’s Centres make a difference in the lives of women, we can build enough political pressure for Working Women’s Centres to be fully funded around the country.

Help us do this by telling us how the Working Women’s Centre helped you.

SUBMIT YOUR STORY

Fundraise for a feminist cause

Fundraising is a significant way that you can join the fight for gender equality and improving the lives of women in our community.

By raising funds for our important cause, you are also telling the story of the impact that gendered issues in the workplace have on vulnerable women. This also raises awareness about the Working Women’s Centre, so that we are able to help more vulnerable workers in South Australia. Which to us is invaluable.

Join us on the 7th of November, you can run, walk or participate in your wheelchair, with a variety of different distances. Get fit and fundraise for a good cause.Find information about registration deadlines here.FAQ’s About City to Bay.RSVP & share the event on Facebook.
