International Womens Day 2012

Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. 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 and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues.

On Thursday 8th March, WSSAG was very pleased to be able to promote the aims of the group and encourage weekday shoppers to reflect on the lives of women seeking sanctuary in Cardiff, at their local LUSH store on Queen Street.

LUSH also donate money to local charities where they can through the sale of their ‘charity pot programme.’

On Sunday 11th March, over at Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, WSSAG attended a fantastic event hosted by Cardiff Feminist Network called Advocate:Challenge:Transform with stalls, panel debates, workshops and more..
