GENDER equality will be in the spotlight at Wangaratta this week.

Women’s Health Goulburn North East will host Press for Progress on Thursday to celebrate International Women’s Day.

It follows the recent Hollywood film industry scandal and World Economic Forum’s 2017 Global Gender Gap Report findings suggesting gender parity is more than 200 years away.

Women’s Health Goulburn North East chief executive Susie Reid said they wanted to bring the spotlight back to local people.

“Now, more than ever, we have a collective responsibility to act, but also so many reasons to celebrate,” she said.

The event runs at Wangaratta Performing Arts Centre from 7.30am to 9am.
