International Women’s Day 2010 University of Cambridge
The Faculty of Arts, Law and Social Sciences will be taking part in a week-long series of events organised by the University of Cambridge to celebrate International Women’s Day 2010 on 8 March.
The history of International Women’s Day began in 1911, a year after Clara Zetkin (Leader of the ‘Women’s Office’ for the Social Democratic Party in Germany) tabled the idea to a conference of over 100 women from 17 countries, representing organisations such as unions, socialist parties and working women’s clubs.
ALSS contributions this year will include a 6-hour performance of Mapping Maternity, co-devised and performed by Drama and Performing Arts lecturer Kerstin Bueschges with Jan Farrer and Sandra Flores, and ‘For a Few Moments Every Day’, a one day workshop about the every day, explored through storytelling and pictures, with Illustrator and ALSS lecturer Pam Smy.
