International Women’s Day

City Hall W.O.W Mums attended an Exhibition in City Hall called Our London Our Women. It’s been 100 years since the first International Women’s Day was held in 1911 to highlight ‘financially unacceptable and often dangerous’ working conditions, said Michelle Bachelet, head of UN Women and a former president of Chile. It brought more than a million women out into the street and now thousands of events are held to celebrate women’s contribution to society.
‘Despite this progress, the hopes of equality expressed on that first International Women’s Day are a long way from being realised,’ added Ms Bachelet.
