For the second year Govanhill Baths Community Trust is marking International’s Women’s Day. We will be running a week-long programme from the 6th to the 11th of March, including events such as workshops, talks, walks and exhibitions. For information on all individual events please click to learn more.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Historically it has been tightly linked with women’s activism and labour. The event was born from the belief in the revolutionary potential of working women, and the importance of improving their lives. International Women’s Day is the perfect occasion to reflect on women’s labour, activism and collective power.
Our celebration will culminate with a march so join us on the 11th March at Govanhill Park at 12pm. We’ll be taking to the streets with other activists who are challenging stigmas in their communities, their workplaces and in their everyday lives. We are marching for a more equal world; a world free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. Together we can celebrate women’s achievements and take action for equality. Join us!
(Our use of the word ‘women’ is inclusive of Trans and Intersex women, as well as any non-binary people who are comfortable in a space that centres the experience of women.)
