EDITORS DESK: Brisbane women lead the way for others

IN THIS edition we recognise International Women's Day (March 8) by profiling Brisbane women who have succeeded in their own right and act as inspiration for others. To support this year's theme "Together we can stop violence against women and girls" Elena Gosse (front page pic - pages 4, 5) has become a part of the Dancing CEOs, a fundraiser for the Women's Legal Service Queensland.

Of course, Women's education, self-confidence and esteem are all part in combating this complex problem, so it is wonderful to profile another great Brisbane success story, Wendy Makin who is renowned as one of Australia's best bridal wear designers. After more than 35 years designing for brides, her gowns have become known for their quality of design, fit and manufacture (pages 8, 9).

I trust you enjoy the read.
