Bid for Equality - Equal Pay Day Handbag Auction

YWCA of Adelaide's major 2014 fundraiser is underway!

Our Bid for Equality Equal Pay Day Handbag Auction features the donated handbags of 60 incredible women including Australia's first female Governor General, Australia's first female Prime Minister, the Westpac CEO, the first woman on the Adelaide Crows Board, the first Aboriginal woman to play for Australia, the first woman to host ABC's Grandstand and so many more.

Every dollar raised will go towards YWCA of Adelaide's women's leadership work. So dig deep. Be generous. Bid big. Spread the word. And secure yourself a treasure, and a part of history.

On the closing night of the Auction, Saturday 6 September, join us for a great big party in Gays Arcade, Adelaide where all of the bags will be on display.

YWCA of Adelaide’s purpose is to build stronger communities through the leadership of women and girls. We do this by supporting them during every step of their leadership journey. The organisation has been working with and for young women in Adelaide since 1880 and is recognised as the leading voice for young women in SA. We deliver programs which focus on early intervention and primary prevention in areas such as young women's leadership, training and employment, mentoring and respectful relationships. To do so we partner with schools, government and industry.
