Australia’s longest-running drama Neighbours will air an all-female episode on Friday 8 March in honour of International Women’s Day.
The episode-first will be directed by women and feature only women.
Neighbours actress, Jackie Woodburne said: “International Women’s Day is so important because it reminds us that we still have a way to go in gender equity.
“It’s a global drive, but to see it reflected in the context of a suburban town like Erinsborough, makes it more personal and relevant to us all.
“I’m so proud Neighbours continues to address current and relevant issues in such an entertaining and accessible way”.
Network 10 executive producer of Neighbours, Sara Richardson said: “International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress, to call for change and to celebrate the courage and determination of women.
“We have a brilliant and inclusive team on Neighbours who are proud to celebrate and recognise the crucial role of women. We want this generation and the next to know they can achieve anything they set their minds to”.
