Commissioner Corbishley Recognises International Women’s Day 2021

Mon, 2021-03-08

Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley – Today is International Women’s Day, a key opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women across the world and the contributions they've made to social, economic, cultural and political advancements.

The theme for this year’s International Women's Day is #ChooseToChallenge, highlighting that a “challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change”.
