As we approach International Women’s Day on 8 March, we continue our showcase of incredible women choosing to challenge each day and make positive changes in our world. And today, we’re shining the spotlight on the wonderfully inspiring Marlee Silva, a proud Gamilaroi and Dunghutti Aboriginal woman based in Sydney, NSW.
A published author and speaker, dedicated to celebrating Indigenous women and girls through storytelling, Marlee writes, produces and hosts her own podcast, Always was, Always will be Our Stories, where she interviews inspiring Indigenous role models who are working to change the world, one day at a time.
We were lucky enough to ask Marlee a few questions about her inspiring work as well as her dreams and how she chooses to challenge every day.

As part of our International Women’s Day spotlight on incredible women, we’d love to introduce you to the super strong and inspiring force of nature, Khadija Gbla. An African Australian human rights activist, Khadija is the definition of an empowered woman fighting for what she believes in and pushing for positive change around the world.
After coming from Gambia to Australia as a refugee at just 13 years of age, Khadija has experienced the sad truth of discrimination, racism, inequality and abuse many women face first-hand.
Now, she is not only a survivor but a passionate advocate for other women who have suffered the same, dedicating her life to helping young women around the world – campaigning against and raising awareness for Female Genital Mutilation (or FGM).
We took five with Khadija to ask her a few questions about her inspiring work as well as her dreams and how she chooses to challenge every day.

However, the exciting thing this year is that we do have one whole extra day in February. That’s right – this year is a leap year, so the 29th is one extra day that we won’t see again for another four years!
