International Women's Week in Tower Hamlets
7 - 14 March 2020
International Women’s Week takes place from 7-14 March with a variety of events across Tower Hamlets Including a celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th.
Women & Power - In 2020, the theme is Women & Power – looking at women’s current position in 21st Century society and how to bring about much needed change for the benefit of everyone. Women are more than capable of sharing power and responsibility. Indeed their different views of the world provide a valuable contribution to our future survival on this planet. Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-97) born in Spitalfields was a human rights campaigner and feminist philosopher. She famously said “I do not wish women to have power over men, but power over themselves”. Today men must be educated to share their power with women.
