As happens most years, you can expect to hear a few grumbles this coming Wednesday about whether the fairer sex really still needs a whole day set aside to mark International Women’s Day. One person likely to persuade the naysayers that the annual March 8 celebration does indeed remain as relevant as ever is Elizabeth Debicki, who is not shy when it comes to calling out the sexism she believes is still alive and well in 2017. Of being constantly compared to fellow Australian actor and porcelain-skinned blonde Cate Blanchett, a defiant Debicki believes such comparisons are indicative of a lazy tendency to “compartmentalise women”. And lest such talk be making the men feel nervous on this lovely Sunday, iconic feminist Gloria Steinem also speaks exclusively to Stellar this week about why men are not the enemy and why both sexes stand to benefit from the fight for gender equality. It’s a win-win, she assures us. And on that note, may the International Women’s Day celebrations begin.
