AROUND 60 people gathered at the Emmanuel United Reform Church in Worthing on Saturday to celebrate International Women’s Day.
Organised by Sussex International Women’s Day and the Worthing Women’s Hub, the event featured a packed programme of activities and talks including flamenco dance, a photo exhibition by Marilyn Stafford and a presentation on ‘A day in the life of a Palestinian woman refugee.’
A varirty of foods were also on offer as well as clothes and jewellery stalls.
Cleo Matthews, from Sussex International Women’s Day, said: “This is the 19th year we have celebrated this day in Sussex and is an opportunity for women to come together and also to appreciate how fortunate we are in this country.
“We are also trying to raise awareness so that other women can come forward and take part in the events that both organisations hold.
“International Women’s Day was born out of a political movement for votes for women.
“We have waited a long time for the vote but in some countries this still has not been achieved.”
Liz Rahman, of the Women’s Hub, said: “We have got to know a lot of different people, cultures and communities since we started the hub almost three years ago and we think it is empowering for those ladies to get together socially and spend time as a group.
“The aim is to form a group that meets regularly and to include as many people as possible.”
We are pleased to announce that this year we are working with Sussex International Women’s Day Group to bring you an exciting afternoon filled with dance, inspiring talks and a photography exhibition by Marilyn Stafford, as well as stalls and food from around the world.
The event will take place on 8th March 2014 1.30pm – 5pm at Emmanuel United Reformed Church, St Michael’s Road, Worthing, BN11 4SD. Entry is free and open to all women and girls (boys up to 12yrs old).
Come and join us for what is set to be an inspiring, educational and fun filled afternoon.
