International Women's Day at the Common Room
March 8th 2015
The Common Room, St Benedict's Street
Workshops focused around Women on March 8th.
So far we have a possible guest speaker to speak from Norfolk African Gender Organisation and a possible discussion workshop using Forum Theatre asking what bothers women in Norwich today.
Danny is looking for a further two workshops and then possible add on's, and would like to ask fellow members if they have any suggestions?
International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries and communities.
This year’s theme, “Equality for women is progress for all” emphasizes how gender equality, empowerment of women, women’s full enjoyment of human rights and the eradication of poverty are essential to economic and social development. It also stresses the vital role of women as agents of development.
There are other events for International Women's Day happening in the evening, and as such any events in The Common Room will avoid this time.
If you have any suggestions, ideas or would like to be involved in organising the day please get in touch with Danny (firstname.lastname@example.org)
