A ROOM full of women might be daunting to some but, for the ladies who attended yesterday's Zonta Club of Warwick International Women's Day (IWD) breakfast, it was a reason to celebrate.

IWD, held annually, celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women from the past and present.

Guest speaker at this year's breakfast Louise Samuel, who is owner, manager and wine maker at Lucas Estate, said she believed the key to success was confidence.

"If an event like this gives women the chance to stand up and be confident then, hopefully, they will carry it with them and be able to maintain that confidence in all situations," Ms Samuels said.

Zonta president Jenny Eldridge said this breakfast was about appreciating what women had to offer.

"It's a chance to get together and celebrate all our achievements with other women from the community, including the younger girls," she said.
