Thursday, 20 May, 2010
The IWG World Conference for Women and Sport began today at Darling Harbour, and finishes on Sunday at Homebush with demonstrations of many sports. Over 700 delegates from all over the world have come to learn, be inspired and take home a legacy for change!
Her Exellency Ms Quentin Bryce AC, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of Australia was given a standing ovation when she entered the conference auditorium tonight. She gave a fantastic speech encouraging more equality for women in media and in boardrooms, and insisting for a need of change globally not only for the health and well being of women around the world, but for more participation for women in sports beyond the early school years. Cathy Freeman, Allison Shreeve, Amy Winters and four other ambassadors attended today in support of the conference.
