International Women’s Day brings together women across the world to celebrate our achievements and highlight our continued fight for gender equality.
Each year, women celebrate the 8th March as a chance to remember the advancement of women’s rights and the women who led the way, whilst remembering our continued action to maintain and advance women’s rights globally, in all aspects of life.
As Labour women it is a chance to remember our own history and the women who paved the way for us. Women like Margaret Bondfield, who was the country’s first woman cabinet minister, through to the women of the last Labour Government who introduced legislation that made a real difference to women’s lives, from the National Minimum Wage, to free breast cancer screening for older women.
On March 8th, thousands of events will be held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. They will range from rallies, conferences and networking events through to local women's craft markets and theatrical and musical performances.
