My friend, Junnita, has been in touch.  Here is what is happening down her way, to-morrow.


INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY
8 MARCH 2011
FOSTER
Gippsland, Victoria

Come and Celebrate the Centenary of 
the first time Women Marched for their Rights
12 noon
Pearl Park

 BYO your Lunch
B’cue is available.

There will be a short address 
about the early pioneering women of Gippsland, 
without them none of the places settled in Australia would have happened.

1 PM
We will go across the road and 
honour these early  Women at the Pioneer Memorial Garden 
at the Foster Museum.

Green, White and Purple are now commonly known as ‘Women’s Colours’ 
and were first used in England in 1908 
at a huge Rally demanding Votes for Women.
White is for purity, 
Purple for dignity, self-reverence and self-respect and 
Green for hope.
PLEASE WEAR THESE COLOURS ON THE 8 MARCH
