After I published yesterday’s post, I realised that I could have posted something a bit more directly relevant to March 8th, International Women’s Day.
My day consisted of doing placement duties driving around and sitting in offices, as well as a gym session followed by dinner with friends. In the car when we were driving around, I made sure the radio was tuned to Triple J. Every year they celebrate International Women’s Day by having “Girls to the Front”, highlighting female artists and presenters all day. 😊
I also read this piece by Carly Findlay, appearance diversity activist and friend, highlighting eight disabled women (and one non-binary person) to follow on social media.
Quote from Carly, introducing the piece: “Happy International Women’s Day!
May your mental load be reduced, manteruptions be kept to a minimum and your voices be heard.
This year’s themes are “No Woman Left Behind” and “Press For Progress“. Disabled women are often forgotten in discussions about diversity and violence and media and women in general. So I’m going to let you know of a few who you need to follow.”
