Co-operatives have seen inspirational women from Dorimène Desjardins to modern-day hero Joyce Clague
Co-operative businesses gave women equal voting rights almost a century before most parliaments of the world did. “On this International Women’s Day in 2012 which is also the United Nations International Year of Co-operatives, I am asking co-operative businesses to follow that example and put more women at the core of their businesses”, said Dame Pauline Green, the first female president in the history of the world’s largest NGO, the International Co-operative Alliance.
Dame Pauline pays tribute to women co-operative leaders in her IWD youtube message including our own Ambassador for Australia's IYC 2012 – Joyce Clague
