Women join event

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Time Life -

Kin Women trav­elled to Man­jimup over the week­end and held events across town aimed at em­pow­er­ing women.

Co-founder Penny Webb said this was the first event they had done in a re­gional town.

“We want to cre­ate op­por­tu­ni­ties for con­ver­sa­tions about things that re­ally mat­ter to women,” she said.

“I think in smaller re­gional towns this can be quite hard so we want to start pro­vid­ing a plat­form for it to be­come pos­si­ble.”

She said the group hoped this event would not be the last, and in the fu­ture they wanted to travel to other towns.

The event on Fri­day night had about 100 peo­ple in at­ten­dance.
