Celebrating the passage of International Women's Day at Valla Hall was a happy event on Saturday that saw 50 people gather to enjoy music, exchanging ideas and breaking bread together.
The crowd included five men, three of whom were busy lending a hand in the kitchen.
The panel discussion about contemporary issues of gender equality with Kim Gould, Debbie Spillane, Chels Marshall and facilitator Diane Garfield was lively and fun.
The day marked the global movement striving for a more gender balanced world.
The Wild Women of Anywhere Beach, Josie and Rosie, and Snez provided live music on the day.
