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 Saturday 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.”

s Aid is launching its Survivor Network on the same day, Saturday 8 March.  The Network brings together inspirational and courageous survivors of domestic abuse and violence and enables them to acquire the skills and knowledge to support and inspire current victims to move beyond domestic abuse and into recovery and safety.
