At a time when women were struggling to be recognised in the Commonwealth Public Service, Beryl Wilson was a trailblazer. I personally find her a strong role model and inspiration.
Today is International Women’s Day. This year’s theme, Be Bold for Change, calls on all of us to step up to help create a world that is more inclusive and equal. The aim is for a world that is more peaceful and sustainable, where the contribution of women is recognised, valued and respected. Australia is committed to this endeavour.
