4 March 2018 11:00am–2:00pm
Trafalgar Square, London
2018 marks 100 years since the first women in the UK got the vote. Yet 100 years on, here in the UK and around the world, women are still too often subjected to sexism, abuse, harassment or violence. It’s time for this to end.
Global charity CARE International works to empower women and girls and each year organises #March4Women to call for an end to gender-based discrimination and violence in the workplace and around the world.
It is a global movement for gender equality: it’s for anyone and everyone who wants to see a more equal world.
This year’s UK event takes
London between 12.00 and 3.00pm on Sunday 4 March, with a march to celebrate International Women’s Day and 100 years since women in the UK first got the vote.
It will followed by an inspirational rally at Trafalgar Square with music, poetry and speeches from some of the biggest names in women’s rights, including Dr Helen Pankhurst, granddaughter of the suffragette speaker, who spoke at this year‘s UNISON women’s conference.
