Programme of Events Celebrating International Women's Day 2011

Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of International Women’s Day

‘From Here to Equality’

International Women's Day on 8 March is a global day celebrating the struggles and achievements of women from all over the world.  It grew from two sources – the struggle of working class women to form trade unions and the fight for women’s right to vote. The theme for 2011 -   “From Here to Equality” - recognises that while significant progress has been made, women have not yet achieved full social, economic and political equality.
