Every year, International Women’s Day is a time for rich celebration of all females on the planet. While we live in a time where change is coming, it’s fair to say that society is often quite slanted to a specific kind of human demographic.
Until the day comes where we have true equality, days such as International Women’s Day play a huge role in helping women from across the world find the help they need to get the respect and attention that they deserve.
Major events are held on a regular basis, but what are some of the most significant events that we can expect to see for this particular day?
This event is going to be held across large parts of the United Kingdom, but is expected to be most keenly felt in London.
This is part of the CARE International UK push to make the event as large as possible, and it’s likely to be among the largest this huge march and rally is especially important this year as it’s the 100th anniversary since some women were given the opportunity to vote in the UK.
The march starts at Millbank in London SW1 and will move through the city until a huge rally takes place at Trafalgar Square.
This huge march is expected to take place in LA, California. This massive march is going to be built around some very important themes indeed.
