Tarsh Belling Gives Emotional Shout Out To Mums On International Women's Day
Studio 10's news reader Tarsh Belling got a little bit choked up when she gave a big shout out to mums on International Women's Day.
This morning, on International Women's Day, Tarsh brought in a sweet personal item to share with hosts Sarah Harris, Yvie Jones, Ange Bishop and Kate Peck.
It was a gorgeous pair of walking shoes. As Tarsh held them up, Sarah was quick off the mark, asking, "Are your pregnant again?"
"Not that I know of..." Tarsh replied.
Turns out the tiny blue shoes were worn by her eldest son Harrison when he was a bub. "I'm going to start crying," Tarsh admitted, holding back tears.
"These bring back special memories," the mum-of-two said, revealing that her own mum gifted her a pair of her own walking shoes at Harrison's baby shower.
Everyone together now: awwwww!
A clearly emotional Tarsh went on to send a "big shoutout" to all women -- including her "beautiful mum and grandmothers".
"They fought so hard and have achieved so much so that we can have the opportunities we can have today," she added while welling up.
International Women's Day is a chance to celebrate the accomplishments of women around the world. The earliest known Women's Day was held in 1909 in New York, organised by the Socialist Party of America.
A year later it was made an annual world event by the International Socialist Woman's Conference, and the day has continued to grow.
Closer to home, Tarsh's colleague Sandra Sully has released a new book -- A G E N D A -- in line with International Women's Day.
The book "seeks to capture the Australian Women's narrative and work out what's relevant to us, what matters to us, what we need to change and where are we winning and failing," she told 10 daily.
Sandra enlisted 15 remarkable women -- trailblazers in their respective fields and of various ages -- from Dame Quentin Bryce to Kate Jenkins, athlete Turia Pitt and acclaimed author and academic Jane Caro to share their thoughts on what it means to be a woman today.
