Wirral women invited to celebrate International Women’s Day at Wirral Met
Wirral women are being invited to celebrate International Women’s Day in Birkenhead on Friday 5th March 2010.
Wirral Change is hosting a day of activities at Wirral Met’s Conway Park campus to mark the annual event.
A spokesman said: “International Women’s Day is an occasion marked by women’s groups around the world; it is commemorated at the United Nations and is designated in many countries as a national holiday.
“When women on all continents, often divided by national boundaries and by ethnic, linguistic, cultural, economic and political differences, come together to celebrate their day, they can look back to a tradition that represents at least nine decades of struggle for equality, justice, peace and development.”
Activities at Wirral Met will include henna painting, makeovers, music, massage, manicures, belly dancing and hair cuts.
There will also be advice on benefits, employment, housing and training.
International Women’s Day at the college takes place from 10am to 3pm.
Activities are free and all women are welcome to attend.
