For 108 years, parts of the world have commemorated the contribution of its female population on March 8.
But International Women's Day has gone largely uncelebrated in Junee - until this year.
Next Friday, Junee Business and Trades and Junee Shire Council will host a soiree at the Athenium Theatre in honour of the women of the region.
The international theme for this year is 'Better the balance, better the world'.
But the shire's event will promote a holistic celebration of womankind.
"Simply we're just recognising women in our communities," said committee member Natalie Phillips.
"Everything they have achieved and everything they contribute."
The March 8 event will feature a celebration of one shire woman in particular, who is described as having a longevous and prominent role in the community.
However, until the night arrives, no-one outside the women's day committee will be given advanced knowledge of who this woman might be.
Not even she will know that she is to be honoured at the evening's gathering.
"It'll be a showcase of this woman's story, and it's actually really exciting to share. It's a really nice story," said Ms Phillips.
Chosen unanimously by the region's six committee members, council's Alana Lesslie believes the identity reveal will leave many "surprised [because] I think not a lot of people would know how much this woman has done in the town."
Cootamundra state member and former Riverina businesswoman Steph Cooke will give a keynote address while local talent Tash Higginson will provide entertainment.
A Riverina produce grazing table and bar will also be available on the night, with one complimentary drink offered upon arrival.
