ABC Radio National’s Life Matters presents Women’s Business: all sorted? a special International Women’s Day centenary event and live broadcast on Tuesday 8 March.
In 1911, the first International Women’s Day rallies were held campaigning for women's rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination. One hundred years later, women’s lives have been transformed.
Join the live audience as Richard Aedy hosts a forum, including special guests for a discussion on the achievements of the past hundred years, and the challenges remaining. Can women really have it all?

Then join the panel and the Life Matters team for morning tea.
