CDU to host International Women's Day Colloquium 


A diverse range of issues will be under discussion in the International Women’s Day Colloquium at Charles Darwin University on March 10.

Topics will include Aboriginal identity, memories of a suffragette grandmother, surviving the war in Iraq and women as peace-makers.

Although the talks will be delivered by women, organiser Kate Reid-Smith says that the topics will have the kind of universal appeal that will attract both men and women.

The Colloquium will be opened by the NT’s Minister for Women’s Policy, Marion Scrymgour, who will also announce a special tribute award to a distinguished Territory woman.

Among the speeches will be the Alicia Johnson Memorial lecture.

The Colloquium will be held in Building 39 on the Casuarina campus of CDU from 9am to 2pm. Lunch will be provided in the Chinese garden. Entry is free.
