One of the first Women’s Day observances caused a revolution!
Celebrated every March to coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8.
Women’s history month is period where people raise awareness about the impact women have made on history, and highlight the needs and issues many women still face worldwide.
In many parts of the world, women are still highly discriminated against, and may even have less access to education and economic opportunities. That’s why throughout the month of March, people will organise demonstrations and rallies in support of women’s rights to give light to these issues not too many people are aware still exist.
Women’s Month commemorates the history of women’s impact in the world and to raise awareness of issues women are facing worldwide, while International Women’s Day was established to commemorate the movement for women’s rights.
Throughout March, Tower Hamlets Council and Alternative arts have celebrating contemporary women artists, activists, writers and performers, women’s groups and community organisations by offering a diverse programme of events and exhibitions across East London.
Each time a woman stands up for herself, without knowing it possibly, without claiming it, she stands up for all women.” — Maya Angelou.
