Join in the celebration of rocking women in a fancy two course lunch with premium drink packages. Meet more amazing women who strive to create a better world for those in adversity. Join CEO of Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia, Lucy Perry and comedian Jean Kittson on this year's rocking International Women's Day Lunch.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia hopes to improve the treatment of pregnant women in Ethiopia. Dr Catherine Hamlin and her late husband went to Ethiopia to train midwives and help in those who suffer from obstetric fistula. The main causes for the medical condition are often poverty and malnutrition in children and the low status of women and girls in Ethiopia. Dr Catherine Hamlin created a modern technique for obstetric fistula surgery saving many many lives.

In addition to this, Women Rock Lunch provides music and a lavish goody bag to participants of this wonderful event. Don't miss out on a life changing experience!

"My dream is to eradicate obstetric fistula from Ethiopia. I won't achieve this in my
lifetime, but you might in yours."

Dr Catherine Hamlin AC, Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia
