On International Women’s Day 2023 (8 March), the Anzac Memorial is holding a series of free special events to commemorate and recognise women who have contributed to the defence of Australia in conflicts and peacekeeping missions.
Women have long played a significant role in Australian military service, from serving in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) then Australian Defence Force (ADF) and carrying out nursing duties on frontlines, to undertaking war work on the home front and making invaluable sacrifices as military spouses.
Starting with a special performance of Devoted Service, a powerful and moving drama filled with insight and poignancy that is derived directly from the true stories of five remarkable women during the Great War, the morning’s program explores the stories of servicewomen from across the decades.
All events are free and take place at the Anzac Memorial. You can attend the full program or specific events (indicate your attendance preferences as part of the registration process).
