Welcome to Ugly Duckling Issue 5, the International Women’s Day Edition. I put this together for the zine stall I organized for IWD on March 8 in Brisbane. I’ve got some fabulous articles in here by my friends and I’ve also got some stuff about the position of women and why we have IWD. The State Labor gov’t organized a women’s festival for IWD (typically all about celebrating women but very little about what women have still need to be equal with men). The big problem many women have is the theme is Smart Women on the Move. Does this mean if you are a woman who is not on the move, then you are not smart? I don’t think so!
Unfortunately I only have a copy of the qld govt poster in black and white – it was actually blue.
*The QLD goverment have the theme of Queensland as the Smart Start, so that is where the whole Smart Women came from*
