This above banner was made by members of the local community in recognition of International Women`s Day (IWD). It is on display at the Galafield Centre café, together with information about the 10 key moments in history.

IWD is a global day (March 8 each year) celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call of action for accelerating women`s equality.

IWD has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911, supported by over 1 million people.  Today IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.

IWD is not group, country or organisation specific.

Woolsington Parish Council wishes to take this opportunity to pay its own tributes to International Women's Day and it`s support for the 2023 campaign theme: #EmbraceEquity
