International Women’s Day 2016 | Half the Sky
With input from our friends at Christian Aid, Fields of Life and Basha.
International Women’s Day 2016 is a time to celebrate the great achievements of women around the globe, and be thankful for those who fought hard to ensure equal opportunities for women in education, careers and politics. However, statistics show that in many parts of our world this is sadly not the case and females simply don’t get an equal chance at life.
The Half the Sky Movement helps to highlight some of our era’s biggest injustices – the oppression and unique issues that women and girls face, at home and in the developing world – and challenges us to consider how we can help turn horror into hope, oppression into opportunity.
In telling these stories, we not only want to raise awareness of complex and often-hidden issues and provide some practical ways of responding, but also to help inspire us all to do our bit to ensure that the future for girls everywhere is a bright, equal, safe and rewarding one.
With input from Rosamond Bennett (Christian Aid), Helen D’Arcy (Fields of Life), Concia Albert (Basha), Nicola Karayiannis, and Gemma Brown (No More Traffik), join us for an evening of inspiration and challenge as we hear stories and reflect on what we can do to make the world a better place for all.
