In 2021 the City of Perth is proud to be led by our first female Chief Executive Officer, Michelle Reynolds, operate with a workforce made up of 47% women and governed by a council that consists of four women Councillors (50% of all Councillors) including Deputy Lord Mayor, Sandy Anghie.

International Women’s Day has been celebrated in various forms across the globe and grown into a global celebration of the power of women. The day serves as a reminder of the progress still to be made until gender equality is achieved across all spheres of public and private life.

This year’s theme for IWD 2021 is Choose to Challenge - a challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change. In recognition of the day we’re showcasing the thoughts on gender equality from some of the great women who help make a difference every day to the City of Perth.
