International Women’s Day 2016

Last week saw the celebration of Women’s social, economic, cultural and political achievements.
On the 7th March the phoenix cinema screened ‘He Named Me Malala’. The film tells the incredible story of Malala Yousafzai who spoke out for children’s right to education. In 2012 Malala was shot by the Taliban. Malala did not let this attack deter her from campaigning and has continued to raise the awareness of the importance of all children having the right to learn in a free and safe environment.
She has since be honoured to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

“International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others”
