This is the major 2014 fundraiser for the YWCA of Adelaide, which is a not for profit young women’s leadership organisation. 

60 incredible women have each donated a handbag (or in some cases, two bags, or a sports bag) to support our important work. We hope you enjoy reading about where these bags have been and what they mean to these women.

The measurements provided for the height of the bag are taken of the body of the bag and do not include the handles or straps.

The symbolism of the handbag draws attention to the sobering and serious fact that right now in Australia, we face an 18.2% gender pay gap.

All funds raised in our Bid for Equality Equal Pay Day Handbag Auction will support the young women's leadership work of the YWCA, and help in our efforts to close the gender pay gap.
