The event was held in conjunction with Gucci’s women’s advocacy program Chime for Change, which was co-founded by Beyoncé and Salma Hayek.

The Australian launch of Level the Law was organised ahead of next year’s Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, with the intention of encouraging Australian leaders to address laws that limit women’s social and economic prospects.
