Respected journalist Tracey Spicer AM to speak at International Women’s Day Breakfast.

One of Australia’s most well-renowned journalists, Tracey Spicer AM, will be guest speaker at Northern Beaches Council’s 2019 International Women’s Day Breakfast on Friday 8 March.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – while also encouraging the acceleration of gender parity.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said this year’s theme for International Women’s Day 2019 is #BalanceforBetter.

“Northern Beaches Council is a proud supporter of International Women’s Day. It’s no surprise this is a global movement has been embraced for over a century.

“This year, Tracey Spicer is our guest speaker. She is renowned for her convictions, passion for social justice and commitment to equality which is fitting for this year's theme.” Mayor Regan said.

The unfortunate fact is that women are still not paid equally to that of their male counterparts, women still are not present in equal numbers in business or politics, and globally women's education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men; however, great improvements have been made.

“At Council we have six female Councillors who are well respected and do a fantastic job.

“Let’s make a difference - think globally and act locally and do what you can to truly make a positive difference for women everywhere,” said Mayor Regan.

Tracey Spicer AM is an author, journalist and television presenter who has anchored programs for ABC TV, Network Ten, Channel 9 and Sky News over the past 30 years.

Currently, she works as a columnist for Fairfax, presentation trainer for Outspoken Women and the Australian Film, Television and Radio School, and media trainer at Spicer Communications. She appears regularly as a commentator on ABC TV and Channel 9.

Tracey has also written, produced and presented documentaries for NGOs in Bangladesh, Kenya, Uganda, Papua New Guinea, and India, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation in Australia.

In 2018, Tracey was honoured with an Order of Australia for work in media and as an ambassador for charitable and social welfare groups.

The unstoppable 50-year-old has also published a Best Selling book titled The Good Girl Stripped Bare.

“Come along to our breakfast for an enjoyable start to your day and do your bit to ensure that the future for girls is bright, equal, safe and rewarding. Make every day International Women's Day!” Mayor Regan said.

The Northern Beaches Council International Women’s Day Breakfast will support the Northern Beaches Women’s Shelter and Manly Warringah Resource Centre with proceeds donated to both charities from a special event raffle.
