Join Women’s Voice this Saturday (March 11) to celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day.
Events begin with a march along the seafront, starting from Warrior Square at 12noon. Celebrations continue at the White Rock Hotel with an afternoon of music, dance, fun and information. Events are free. Children are welcome and refreshments will be provided. A spokeswoman for Women’s Voice said: “The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is ‘Be Bold for Change’ and there really is need for change. Events over the last year highlight that women are still denigrated and discriminated against. In the US, and here ,a re-energised women’s movement has emerged as women stand up boldly to demand their rights and positive change. We hope local women, and men, will join us to add their voices.”
