We can hardly believe it, but there are only two short weeks between now and the 25th of November when Kate Jenkins, Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner, will launch Trailblazing Women at our gala event.

Speaking of which, have you got your ticket? All proceeds from ticket sales go towards The Global Women's Project, supporting women to determine their own lives in Cambodia and Nepal. 

And if you needed another reason to come (other than to be immersed in a celebration of inspirational, pioneering women, of course!) we can now reveal that we will be silent auctioning six original works, created especially for this exhibition, on the night.

That means if you’ve got your eye on one of these works, you need to be at the launch for the chance to snap it up. Get your tickets here.

We're so excited to share these spectacular pieces with you below!

And did we mention drinks, food, global beats, and a room filled with like-minded people?

Trailblazing Women of Herstory is a fundraising art exhibition in support of The Global Women's Project. Thirty-nine award-winning and emerging artists have created original portraits of trailblazing women, to be exhibited, sold and auctioned during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence at Neospace Gallery in Collingwood, Melbourne. Proceeds from sale of art go towards The Global Women's Project's work, supporting women to determine their own lives in Cambodia and Nepal, as well as exhibiting artists. 

The exhibition is open to the public from 26 November - 10 December, 2016. For the full rundown including opening hours, click here.
