Missives, April 2019

A newsletter for the friends, members and supporters of YWCA Australia.

The latest edition of our e-newsletter, Missives, is now available, with this message from Michelle Phillips our CEO:

Women leading change across the world!

The past two months have been a whirlwind – from the United Nation’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York to International Women’s Day events in Australia – YWCA is supporting women who are leading change across the world.

Importantly, we’re backing young women to become leaders in their communities with our very first Young Women’s Council forum in Sydney. The Council is made up of 16 women between the ages of 12 to 29 years old, with representation from every State and Territory. The group was excited to meet each other face-to-face to work on a model of young women’s leadership grounded in intersectional feminism. Stay tuned to see great work from this group in the future!

Thank you to everyone who has been on this journey with us!
