International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day


International Women’s Day is a worldwide UN event celebrating women’s achievements – from the political to the social – while calling for gender equality. It has been observed since the early 1900s and is recognised each year on 8 March.

The University event focuses on the 2019 theme for International Women’s Day, Press for Progress, and keynote speakers share how they are pressing for progress. The event also acknowledges and celebrates 100 years since the Representation of the People Act 1918 – the act allowing some women in the UK the right to vote.
