Fairtrade Fortnight is about people coming together to support farmers and workers around the world. It’s your chance to stand up for what you believe in – whether that’s protecting the environment, gender equality, or ensuring farmers and workers are paid fairly. It used to be that you had to strike, chant, march or chain yourself to a tree to stand up for what you believe in.
Join us at Bundoora next Wednesday on campus for the screening of:
Seven Women – Wednesday 16 August
12:30pm – 2:00pm
ELT, 2 La Trobe University, Bundoora
The inspirational story of a previous La Trobe student and the fantastic organisation she has created to help others.
Stephanie Woollard created Seven Women at only 22, after meeting seven disabled women operating out of a tin shed in Kathmandu, struggling to make a living and enduring harsh discrimination. With her last $200, she paid for trainers to upskill the women to produce products for sale locally and abroad – and so Seven Women was born.
