Events to be held in Greenwich to mark International Women’s Day 

A variety of events and activities are taking place in Greenwich to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The theme is Embrace Equity, with people encouraged to imagine a world free from discrimination.

Greenwich Council, in partnership with Creating Ground, an organisation which works with migrant women living in the borough, is running an event at the Woolwich Front Room, Powis Street.

Residents are welcome to attend to help produce a piece of community art highlighting the achievements of women locally.

Other events taking place in Greenwich today include fitness classes at Greenwich leisure centres and talks with authors Ramya Julien and K.E Milligan at Greenwich libraries.

Cllr Adel Khaireh, Cabinet Member for Equality, Culture and Communities at Greenwich Council, said: “Men can be allies and celebrate and value the contribution of women from all backgrounds in our borough – not just on International Women’s Day but all year round too.”

Laura Marziale, at Creating Ground, said: “At our Woolwich Front Room event, we will be creating butterflies for International Women’s Day to symbolise how we are all unique but equally special in our diversity.”

She added: “Through embracing our differences and working together, we can transform ourselves and our community for the better.”
