    8 March, 2019

    International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first​ ​March 8​ ​IWD gathering supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the​ Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women equality. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organisation specific.​ Make IWD your day! - everyday!

    The Women's Suffrage Commemorative Fountain is located at the entrance to the House of Representatives garden within a walkway linking Old Parliament House to Constitution Place. The border of the water feature is etched with a passage of the Commonwealth Franchise Act 1902 and commemorates the 1903 election, in which women voted and stood for Federal Parliament for the first time. A timeline extends from the fountain towards Constitution Place and details names and achievements of significant women in Australian political life from 1902.
