This year, the Law Student Society’s (LSS) Women’s Portfolio are celebrating International Women’s Day by hosting a High Tea to launch their project, ‘Women’s Business: A Social Justice Initiative’.
The High Tea is slated for 1 – 2 p.m., Tuesday, 19 March, on MLS Level 1. Students can enjoy a cup of tea with some cupcakes and crustless sandwiches, whilst also choosing where the LSS Women’s Portfolio should direct its resources in helping disadvantaged women and children.
In a statement, one of the LSS Women’s officers, Brigitte Wise, said ‘we propose that we make a difference outside of the Law School, show our support and promote equal opportunities for all women of Victoria, and especially for the women that need it most’.
The statement also thanked the event’s sponsors, Leo Cussen and Minter Ellison Lawyers.
International Women’s Day, which was marked on Friday, 8 March, began in the early twentieth century’s struggle to build solidarity across national borders and promote women’s liberation and education.
