Thought for the Week

Engaging and encouraging debate, discussion and discourse

International Women's Day.

For many years women in the UK strived to reach an equal status to men, to be treated the same as them in all aspects of life and to enjoy the same rights. Some might say that those battles have now been won here at home although others might disagree. In other countries those issues are still a daily struggle for thousands of women and International Women's Day aims to raise awareness of this cause.
