International Women's Day 2019

Shannon Shelley Victoria IWD Feb 19

Clelands Lawyers Adelaide solicitors Shelley O’Connell, Victoria Treloar and Shannon McMenamin attended the Adelaide International Women’s Day Breakfast supporting the UN Women National Committee Australia.

Keynote speaker Jane Caro addressed the some 2500 attendees with an amusing and informative talk on women’s education, life in the workforce, and the possible reasons for the alarming statistic that women over 55 are now the fastest growing group of people experiencing homelessness in Australia.

Caro highlighted the need for care to be shared in the home, for costs of childcare to be regulated, and for changes in superannuation laws.

We look forward to attending the event again next year and supporting the wonderful work of UN Women.
