International Women’s Day TUC Event

16 February 2010

It is almost time for this year’s International Women’s Day (held on the 8th March each year), a day on which a huge many events are held throughout the world: to celebrate the achievements of women, to encourage further action as well as being a day which signals solidarity with other women throughout the globe.

This year the TUC will be holding an exciting celebration involving a variety of entertainment: music, politics, poetry, comedy and some campaigning. It is also an important opportunity for the TUC to showcase some of the work it continues to do globally in order to empower women in their attempts to improve their rights in a number of developing countries.

The event will be opened by Frances O’Grady, TUC Deputy General Secretary, Glenys Kinnock will be in attendance, international trade unionists are able to speak and Lorraine Bowen will act as compére throughout the evening. Zena Edwards will be singing, along with hip-hop duo Poetic Pilgrimage and Josie Long will be providing the comedy.

It promises to be a fantastic evening and it is well worth attending: for more information, including tickets, check out this link to the TUC event page.
