Celebrating International Women’s Day

Today I want to share some ideas for Celebrating International Women’s Day which is taking place this week, on Friday 8th March.

I love to find ways to find the good in everyday life and I also enjoy using the themes of special days of the year to help with this. A lot of these ideas could work any day of the year for celebrating women and those in your life but why not start this week by celebrating International Women’s Day?

  1. I’ve organised a women’s history festival on Saturday. We’ve got speakers, craftivists, films etc and we’re collecting sanitary products for The Red Box Project and beauty/hygiene products for Beauty Banks. Should be a fun day (www.snappingthestiletto.com/festival)
