International Women’s Day celebrates the economic, political
and social achievements of women in the past, present and future.
It’s a time for looking back on the past struggles and accomplishments of
women and more importantly, for looking ahead to the untapped
potential and opportunities that await future generations of women.
To celebrate IWD 2014, you are invited to a very special
luncheon, starring special guest speaker Rae Earl, and
celebrating the launch of the fabulously talented
Peta Barwick’s “I am Modern Woman” series.

Rae Earl was born in Stamford in Lincolnshire in 1971 and now lives in Hobart, with her husband
and son. Rae worked in radio for 15 years before nicking Brian McFadden’s Mars bar, a sure sign she
had peaked professionally and Rae turned back to her first love – writing.
Rae’s book ‘My Fat, Mad Teenage Diary’ (Hodder, 2007), described as ‘funnier, sadder & ruder than
Adrian Mole’ by the Financial Times, was made into a phenomenally successful UKTV drama serial
and has been followed with Rae’s ‘Hattie Moore’ series for teens. Her first project ‘Next door’s Persian
cat has been run over – an experimental poem,’ remains unpublished and under the mattress at her
mum’s house.
Peta Barwick is an interior decorator with a ‘hands-on’ background and a passion for beautiful
design. Her creativity has recently extended to a series of artworks, celebrating all of the wonderful
dimensions of being a modern woman. (www.p1design.com.au)
