1985 Oct 25 International Time Off for Women

March 8 marks International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

The origins of International Women’s Day can be traced to the second International Conference of Working Women in Copenhagen in 1910. Delegates approved a motion calling for a celebration of women every year in every country. Today International Women’s Day is a month-long celebration and the struggle for equal access and opportunity, are as relevant today as it was in 1910.

Throughout the month of March, we have a programme of activities to celebrate, to take part in and to learn more about women’s history.

Associate Artist Roxanna Vilk has teamed up with charity Bristol Women’s Voice to offer a free Lullabies workshop (Mar 10). The Workshop is open to families and carers and is an opportunity to learn Iranian, Slovenian and Cuban Lullabies. Sign up here.

As part of Art of Resistance we will be exploring the ways that women have creatively responded to the struggle for equality across the world. Our outdoor gallery, Snapshots of Resistance, will have a selection of photographs documenting women protestors & pioneering artists – with a wider selection of photographs from our archive will be accessible online. We will also be releasing an inspirational interview with Bristol treasure singer songwriter Rita Lynch. We are also calling out for stories and art to be part of the project. Submit yours online here.

There are more activities planned, keep an eye out on our website, sign up to our newsletter or follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep-up-to-date and to #GetInvolved.
