Women's Big Milestone

The Women's Subscription Enterprise is celebrating a big milestone in time for International Women's Day.

The employees have dispatched half a million copies of The Big Issue magazine to subscribers since the initiative launched in 2010. 

The Women's Subscription Enterprise provides employment for homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged women through the sale of subscriptions to The Big Issue magazine. Women pack subscriber copies of the magazine for distribution every fortnight in a secure and supportive work space.

Since 2010, the initiative has employed 150 women at dispatch centres in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. 

We are celebrating these achievements this International Women's Day. It's a great time to subscribe and support women in need: every subscription counts towards providing more work opportunities. Find out more or subscribe here
