West Mercia Women’s Aid is supporting an international campaign that aims to celebrate women and their achievements.

International Women’s Day – which will take place on Sunday 8 March – is a global event celebrating the economic, social and political achievements of women; in China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.  The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911.

Jan Frances, Chief Executive of West Mercia Women’s Aid said: “Each year around the world, International Women’s Day is celebrated on 8 March.  Thousands of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.  Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.  Many groups around the world choose different themes each year relevant to global and local gender issues.

“West Mercia Women’s Aid thoroughly supports International Women’s Day which complements our own themes of championing a future for women and girls that is bright, equal, safe and rewarding.”

Make It Happen is the 2015 theme for internationalwomensday.com global hub, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women. Each year a theme is declared by The United Nations.
