International Women's Day (8 March) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere. IWD is not country, group or organization specific.''

Making Waves Display
Making Waves: Women have, over the past 300 and more years, made enormous strides in establishing for themselves a place of their own in the world, achieving legal and political equality throughout much of the globe. A great deal of this success has derived from the power and insight lent by the rise and ongoing evolution of Feminism. THIS EXHIBIT chronicles the historical contributions of Feminism to the continuing struggle for social justice, acknowledging the past while looking ahead to the future of the women's movement.
There will be a wall of posters for YOU to participate in! Bring your favourite poster or images and you'll be able to set them up for display on our Sharing Wall! It's free, fun, and can be thought-provoking.
