Celebrating the Empowerment of Women


Ladies, it is time to celebrate. The 102nd International Women's Day is on the 10th March 2013. The first Women's Day in 1911 was marked by a Suffragette protest when they rallied for the right to vote, hold a place in public office, and receive an education equal to men, and campaigned for an end of discrimination. It is only right that we commemorate these achievements, and there are plenty of events where you can celebrate.
