International Women’s Day Event – Preston ~ 8th March 2012

1 March 2012 at 8:50 pm

Women only event.

International Women’s Day is celebrated across the world on 8 March each year. It is a global ‘gathering’ organised by women for women in recognition of the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and in the future.

It is important to create some women-only space to mark International Women’s Day locally enabling women to speak openly and freely about social inequalities that continue to affect the lives of ordinary women in different ways every day.

Join us and help celebrate women in Preston and around the globe!
