International Women's Day ABC, Long Story Short


My parents gave me a great gift as a young girl. They instilled in me a belief that that there was no limit on what I could aspire to, and no limit on what I could achieve with hard work, determination, courage and resilience.

This, however, is not the view of every little girl growing up in Australia.

And for many girls embarking on life’s journey they are culturally conditioned to doubt themselves more, to always play the team game and put others first, and to expect less than the boys and men around them.

It isn’t right.  And frankly it isn’t fair.
