International Women's Day logo

Palms Australia echoes the U.N. theme for 2012 International Women’s Day: Empower Rural Women – End Hunger and Poverty.
Bring your lunch and join us at 1pm Thursday, 8th March to mark the occasion. During this informal gathering we will hear stories about the challenges and successes of rural women in their quest to be self-reliant agents of change in their community.

As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems or, for that matter, to any problems. Inequality is the root of social ills. - Pope Francis (Joy of the Gospel 202)
