Each year on 8 March, events are held all around the world to mark International Women’s Day, celebrating and reflecting on the social, economic, political, and cultural achievements of women. The 2024 IWD theme encourages all to ‘Inspire Inclusion’, aiming to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.

Her Honour took silk in 2009 and became the first female Deputy Senior Public Defender in 2013.
