“Very informative...”

I find the women’s displays very informative, colourful, interesting and inspiring. The information is current and lets the women know what is happening in the centre, in the community and all over the world. The display boards touch on relevant issues important to women such as body image, healthy eating and relationships and have inspiring and strengthening quotes for empowerment.
