International Women’s Day

Manchester’s chosen theme for International  Women’s Day 2014 is ‘Women as Peacemakers’. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary  of the start of the First World War,  International Women’s Day 2014 is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the role  that women have played and continue to play in conflict resolution and peace  building. There will be grants of up to £500 to  create IWD events and activities in March 2014, and groups are invited to  apply.
