In support of International Women’s Day on 8 March, whimn.com.au will release their inaugural Power Women series, profiling 25 of the brightest names of the future on their paths to power.

With Her In Mind Network (WHIMN)’s series celebrates the achievements of these women and looks at how they choose to use their power to make the lives of Australian women and girls better in the move to gender equity.

whimn.com.au editor Melissa Shedden said: “Our goal through the Power Women series is to unearth and give a platform to the female voices of the future.

“We’re a young brand, turning two on International Women’s Day, so it’s important to us to support the women we consider a ‘whimn woman’, that is, someone who is living our editorial philosophy of smart, honest and fun.

“It’s our pledge to share their stories.

“Whether it’s through a single act, adversity, self-acceptance, humour, influence, sport, or finding your voice – there are so many unique and sometimes unorthodox paths to power and ways to use it.

“Through these diverse profiles, Australian women can learn ways that speak personally to them, to feel that bit more powerful”.

To celebrate its second birthday, whimn.com.au will host their first consumer event on International Women’s Day, where three of the featured Power Women share their stories and advice on power and what we can learn.

Guests will hear about the history-making power of a single act, from Senator Larissa Waters, our first politician to breastfeed in parliament, while Paralympian Kelly Cartwright will share how she found her power through overcoming adversity and accepting her body, losing her leg to cancer at age 15, then going on to win two Paralympic medals.

Presenter and author Yumi Stynes will open up about the power of visibility and losing the must-please gene.

All ticket sale proceeds will be donated to the charity organisation Infoxchange which powers Ask Izzy, a mobile website that connects people in need with housing, a meal, health and wellbeing services, counselling and more.
