International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past,present and future. The first IWD event was run in 1911 so 2011 sees the Global Centenary.
This year the Sexual Violence Centre invited women of all ages to take part in our open day on Saturday 5 March to celebrate International Women’s Day. Part of the festivities of the day included taking photographs for the commemorative poster:100 years of International Women’s Day. Thank you to all involved and to everyone who came along. It was a great day and we are looking forward to the final edition of the poster.
