Warrego MP Ann Leahy’s inspiring Women’s Day message
One of the region’s most influential women, Warrego MP Ann Leahy has shared her International Women’s Day message that females are strongest when they support one another.
Elected in the Liberal National Party as the member for Warrego in 2015, Ms Leahy believes having women representing the community is a positive outcome for any region.
“International Women’s Day is an opportunity to recognise and be inspired by the achievements of women locally, nationally and internationally,” Ms Leahy said.
“Every women’s success should be an inspiration to another.
“We’re strongest when we cheer each other on.”
After asking the Warrego representative why it’s integral women are in parliament, Ms Leahy said it’s simply that the community comprises of women and men so it’s important both gender have their voices represented.
“The best outcomes come from women and men working together making decisions for the community,” Ms Leahy said.
Her mother was the most influential women to shape her life saying she said many wise sayings to her and her siblings.
“She regularly repeated the 10 commandments to her children … she had a few other wise sayings like do unto others as you would have them do to you,” she said.
