Tuesday 8th March Network She International Women’s Day Special Event
Network She, the networking group for women in business and aspiring to go into business, has arranged a very special event on International Women’s Day (IWD) Tuesday 8th March. Three Network She IWD lunches will be held simultaneously across North Wales, Chester and Staffordshire.
The first IWD was held 100 years ago when people marched across Europe campaigning for women’s rights. 100 years later in the UK we have the right to an education, to hold public office and to vote. But many women do not have these basic rights.
Around the world discrimination exists, sexual and domestic violence occurs, girls are denied education and the United Nations states, “Women have not achieved equality with men in any country.”
Yet the role of women since 1911 UK has changed. I hope the role of women around the world will be change in the next 100 years?
To celebrate this change Network She is asking you to share the story of an inspirational woman who has assisted in this change. The 100 most inspiring women and the contributor will be featured in the 100 Years – 100 Women commemorative book which will be given to the 400 women attending the Network She IWD lunch.
To join us in celebrating IWD and the achievement of women in the last 100 years book your ticket through ‘Eventbrite.com’. Tickets for each of the events are £28 and include drinks reception, 2 course lunch, inspirational presentations from inspirational women, goody bags and a complimentary copy of 100 years-100 Women, a commemorative book profiling the women that have inspired you over the years.
