Whether woman, man, non-binary or gender diverse – each of us has a role to play in working towards gender equality. As such, in Australia, this year’s International Women’s Day theme is ‘More Powerful Together’. On March 8th, we’ll be celebrating the power of collaboration as a means for breaking down stereotypes, unlocking empathy and blowing up preconceived gendered roles. Because when we stand in unison and communicate openly, effectively, compassionately, incredible things can happen. Here are some books that champion that notion.
