I think it's good to recognise International Women's Day. I do think it's getting better now women can work and have a family. I'm all for that. I stayed home with my family but there are options.

I guess there's more to be done but for me personally I'm an independent woman, I work so I'm happy my needs are being met and I'm looking forward to relaxing in retirement.

The day is good for women. It's good for them to be appreciated by family and in the workplace. There's always going to be inequality in pay rates. We're forever trying to fight for that.

It's more an issue for people who are young, we learned to live with the system. It's very important women can speak up without getting bullied.
