The Women We Love

HerCanberra Team

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY 2017!

At HerCanberra, we don’t just pride ourselves on shining a light on women of interest – our entire online presence, our social media channels, our printed Magazine and our events all revolve around the one single idea: to make women’s experience of Canberra the best it can be and, of course, to recognise the amazing women who fill our city.

For International Women’s Day 2017, we wanted to look back over the last six (SIX!) years and share just a small sample of the profiles, interviews, chats and laughs with the women we love.

For our third Magazine, the ‘Hidden Issue’, we wanted to shine the light on Canberra women on the forefront of the social justice in our city.

They’re the women bravely leading the charge against Canberra’s big issues: issues that while many are uncomfortable to talk about, are reaching devastating proportions in our city.
