The first edition of the What’s On For Women booklet for 2013 highlights special events around Canberra celebrating the Centenary year, Minister for Women Joy Burch announced today.
The 60-page publication produced by the Women’s Information and Referral Centre, boasts comprehensive information and contact details on services ranging from post natal depression support and anger management, to BBQ lunches and book launches.
“The first edition of the publication for this year includes events that are being held to celebrate the Centenary of Canberra, some of these are targeted specifically at women,” Ms Burch said.
“Among them, the Launch of the Online Exhibition: a Century of Women’s Contributions to Canberra, which is a permanent exhibition on the Australian Women’s Register to provide brief biographies of women and women’s organisations with links to archival and published sources.
“Whilst it includes many recreational, fun activities, the booklet is something every woman and girl in our community should have a copy of.
“It is an excellent resource that can help with providing contacts and information on issues women may be dealing with such as domestic violence.”
Copies of What’s On For Women are available from community organisations and the Women’s Information and Referral Centre on London Circuit in Civic. It is also available at www.women.act.gov.au
