International Women’s Day – Women on the Bridge

International Women’s Day has been celebrated for over one hundred years and is now a public holiday in countries as diverse as the UK, Afghanistan, Nepal and Russia. International Women’s Day grows each year and many different events are held around the world. One of the most popular events started as the meeting of Congolese and Rwandan women on a bridge that joined their two countries and came to represent the importance of women from all over the world joining together to build bridges of peace and progress. It has become a tradition for groups of women to meet on bridges around the world to celebrate International Women’s Day and to work together to support women all over the world.

On the 8th of March Solent Feminist Network and Aurora New Dawn will be hosting a Join us on the bridge event at Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth. This will include speakers, live music and a very moving candle ceremony.  The event runs from 5-6pm  on Friday the 8th of March and will take place on the final bridge along the canal that separates the residential part of Gunwharf from the restaurants. Come along and help us celebrate and support women everywhere.
