Topic: International Women's Day
International Women’s Day, celebrated on 8th March, is the global day recognising the economic, political and social achievements of women. For women in the Navy who make up approximately 21% of the full-time RAN workforce, it is not just another day at sea or ashore but also a day to take pride in their duties and reflect on their role in Navy.
International Women's Day at sea onboard HMAS Success was business as usual with key positions held by female officers and sailors during replenishment activities.
Each year on 8 March, Navy joins with institutions and organisations around the world to celebrate International Women’s Day, recognising the achievements and vital role women deliver in the workforce.
