International Women’s Day
Who is a woman you admire and why?
Debra Howe, Mackay:
The woman I most admire is Jude Monroe, who was the CEO of Brisbane City Council for 10 years. I think for a woman to help run the largest local government in Queensland is a real feat.
Roz Jennings, Airlie Beach:
Debra Howe. After hearing her speak today, I am so full of admiration for her love of life.
Gayle Moody, Proserpine:
One woman I really admire is one of my friends, Louise Foxley. She is a midwife at the Proserpine Hospital and she is absolutely amazing.
Michelle Lynes, Airlie Beach:
I admire my grandmother, she passed away recently and on her funeral notice it said ‘I have lead a full and active life’ and I found that to be very inspiring.
Carrie Berndeich, Cannonvale:
I admire Bujalung woman Naomi Moran from the Koori Mail, an indigenous newspaper.
Alison Holmes, Cannon Valley:
I admire the Queen of England. She's been through some tough times and has always retained her decorum.
Pam Harrison, Cannonvale:
I admire my daughter. After having two children and travelling the world, she's finished her degree and started her Masters. She's my hero.
