Hi, I’m Emma-Marie your women’s officer.
Week 9 is the annual International Women’s Week and I’m here to tell you a bit about that, and what is on the calendar!
What is International Women’s Day?
International Women's Day is a global event that calls for celebrations and recognition of achievements.
We are going to #BeBoldForChange in line with the national International Women’s Day theme, looking at a range of issues that should be considered when working towards gender parity. The pertinent issues we are looking at include: education, work, disability, and sexual health, and more through talks, resources, and policy and a march. Thanks to the work of a number of societies, departments and the International Women’s Week Team there have been a number of events organised.
What you can do this IWW?
You can attend the events and learn, you can use the hashtag, #BeBoldForChange, you can challenge behaviours that work against gender parity and you can march with us on Friday 10th for Reclaim the Night.
