Abbie Chatfield has been applauded for sharing candid post slamming International Women’s Day celebrations on Friday

In the post, Abbie acknowledged that while there is ‘a HUGE amount of work to be done’ when it comes to women’s rights, she feels like many of the celebrations are performative.

‘I’ve always found it difficult to get excited about attending a morning tea organised BY women FOR women, and for the same women to clean up, ordered by male CEOs to “do something nice for the office”, as though the emotional labour they exert to throw the morning tea for themselves isn’t counterintuitive to the whole idea of celebrating,’ she ranted.

‘As though women aren’t the ones constantly expected to throw the parties in the office for free, just because “women are better at it!!!” (We call this “weaponised incompetence”)’.

She added that the celebrations don’t matter ‘if there isn’t tangible changes in our every day lives’.

Abbie went on to explain the history of International Women’s Day, and insisted that ‘women are still fighting for this equality’.

She said ‘there are still leaps and bounds to go’, and added that ‘a cupcake isn’t going to help that’.

The reality TV star then outlined what she thinks International Women’s Day should be about.

‘I don’t want a f**king male CEO to be pat on the back for gathering everyone into the kitchen for morning tea, set up by his female staff, to say “thanks for all the hard work ladies!!!” to then go back into his office where women are paid less and harassed more,’ she continued.

She concluded: ‘We need actual education that reaches those who don’t want to listen. We don’t need a f**king cupcake’.
