The Tasmanian Government is delighted to once again support the Royal Hobart Hospital Research Foundation to host the 2016 International Women's Day Breakfast.

What is International Women's Day?
International Women's Day is a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women. It is a day to acknowledge the contribution of women in so many roles across our communities. The Tasmanian Government is proud to support such an important day. The State Service is one of the biggest employers of women in the State – let's take the opportunity to celebrate this and attend the Big Breakfast.

More about guest speaker, Tara Moss  Photo
Outspoken human rights advocate, TV presenter and supermodel, Tara Moss promises to be an inspiring guest speaker at this year's event. Her social analysis on women's issues makes her a perfect fit to speak on International Women's Day. She has raised the spotlight on many human rights and social justice issues through her various roles, including UNICEF Australia's National Ambassador for Child Survival, Patron of the Full Stop Foundation for Rape and Domestic Violence Services Australia and Norton Family Ambassador for keeping children safe online. Tara has also shared her experiences and taken a broad look at everyday sexism, modern motherhood, body image and the portrayal of women in politics, entertainment, advertising and the media in her best-selling book, The Fictional Woman.

Tara Moss is a great role model for making a difference. Don't miss this great opportunity to hear her speak!
