“#InternationalWomensDay 💛 My mum will always be my greatest inspiration. Never in my life have I met someone as kind, patient and strong as she is. Every day I watch her take on so much. She runs Australia Zoo and continues all the important work of our nonprofit organization, Wildlife Warriors, on top of protecting nearly 500,000 acres of conservation land.

“She ensures that everything she built alongside my dad continues on into the future. She is always there for me and my wonderful brother as our guiding light. No matter what question or challenge may cross her path, she has the perfect answer and solution. She is the living embodiment of everything International Women’s Day stands for.”

“If I could share any emotion it’s kindness,” the former Bachelorette wrote on Instagram.

“Kindness often ensures respect, loyalty, love, peace, patience, empathy, compassion & rationale understanding. It’s always needed, never wasted, is reciprocated, is free, is contagious, is addictive.

“Kindness turns a frown upside down, is a warm mother’s hug, is the last lolly in the bag, is the voice that shakes but is heard, is dinner to feed the hungry, creates a more peaceful place. We can spread kindness so our news headlines aren’t riddled with murder, hatred, jealousy, greed & war.”

The former foreign minister wrote: “We can remove International Women’s Day from the calendar 🗓 when girls in developing countries receive the same education opportunities as boys, when sexual violence against women and girls is no longer used as a weapon of war, when the global gender pay gap is reduced from 30 per cent to 0 per cent.”
