International Women’s Day Celebrations kick off in Brighton
The Brighton Women’s Centre (BWC) are once again hosting the largest annual IWD celebrations in partnership with Brighton Dome and Brighton Museums on March 7th, 2020.
With gender equality firmly on the agenda, the free and inclusive all-day event celebrates women’s achievements while raising vital funds for the BWC. With this year’s theme being Women and the Climate Emergency, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas will be joining the event alongside a panel of female climate experts and activists.
The panel will be discussing how gender inequality leaves women more vulnerable to climate change, and how women are leading the way in tackling the climate crisis.
There will also be a number of environment themed activities, including a Green Magic show, an Ice Cream Melting Challenge with Brighton’s Science Festival, as well as talks on sustainable fashion and eco-anxiety.
Plus, exhibitions, entertainment and workshops where you can learn to dance, sing, stage fight, write comedy, or just chill out with some yoga. A lunch buffet will be provided by the Real Junk Food Project and the Network of International Women based on a pay-as-you-feel basis.
International Women’s Day has been celebrated annually for over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911. In that time, humanity has seen a huge global expansion in all industries and sectors, but the core values that have truly progressed are our acceptance, equality and inclusivity for all.
