Greens Senator Dr Mehreen Faruqi is pleased to invite you to join her for the Fifth Annual International Women's Day Breakfast. 

This series has become renowned for an honest and radical discussion about gender and race. The breakfast privileges the voices of women of colour. This year's IWD theme is #balanceforbetter

Special guest
This year we will be joined by the inspiring writer and academic, Roanna Gonsalves. 

Dr Roanna Gonsalves was born in Mumbai, India, and came to Australia as an international student in 1998. She is the author of The Permanent Resident which won the NSW Premier’s Literary Award Multicultural Prize 2018. Roanna is a sought-after presenter at literary festivals, community events and schools. She also teaches at several Australian universities. 

Roanna’s series of radio documentaries on the ABC, On the tip of a billion tongues, is an acerbic socio-political portrayal of contemporary India through its multilingual writers. She is a recipient of the Prime Minister’s Australia Asia Endeavour Award, and is co-founder co-editor of Southern Crossings. 

Roanna can be found at roannagonsalves.com.au and on Twitter @roannagonsalves
