At Mamamia, every day is International Women’s Day. But this year, we’re celebrating March 8 by sharing stories from some of Australia’s most influential women, as well as columns from voices spanning 5 generations, on the decade-defining conversations women are having. You can find all our International Women’s Day stories on our hub page.
Today, March 8, is International Women’s Day – a global campaign dedicated to celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and, of course, a day committed to accelerating gender equality.
But IWD is also an occasion to generate discussions – among men and women and girls and boys – about the themes that impact and surround us.

Here at Mamamia, we are also using March 8 to talk about the decade-defining conversations feminists – in their teens, twenties, thirties, forties and fifties – are having in their everyday lives. Like the ludicrous pressure to achieve success at a young age, and why the ‘wellness’ industry is making women sick.
Here are those decade-defining conversations from the voices of five different generations.
