Christian Biggs while welcomed the invitees, delivered a speech on the women movement in the world, their recent progress as well as their impact in different areas.

Some part of her speech is as follows:

“According to the World Economic Forum’s latest Global Gender Gap Report – which measures the relative gaps between women and men across four key areas (health, education, economy and politics), it will take decades in some countries, or over a century in others, for the gender gap to close.  For all our countries, there is room for significant improvement, which is why we need to work together to accelerate this process.  Each and every one of us can make a difference to promote and advance the cause of gender parity globally.

 As UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, has said: “let’s support women and girls who are breaking down barriers to create a better world for everyone."

We were pleased to celebrate International Women’s Day with the Australian Embassy in Iran on 7 March 2019”

Ms. Kim Pang, the second secretary for the economic projects of the embassy welcomed the invitees, introduced the participated organizations and at the end she asked the invitees to enjoy from an Iranian traditional music and then, one of the successful women entrepreneurs read a text on the occasion of the International Women's Day and impact of women as elements of progress and growth of the next generation.

It is worth mentioning that representative of Disability Association of Tavana distributed the catalogues of the association amongst the invitees.
