Women’s Week NSW and International Women’s day 2019 are fast approaching!

I was so overwhelmed trying to decide on an event (or events, depending on my time management skills) that I would attend so I figured that I should write a blog post listing my top picks and decide from there.
Unfortunately, some of the extra popular events are already sold out (such as Senator Mehreen Faruqi’s and Business Chicks) but there is always next year!
