A time for celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
International women’s day has been celebrated since the early 1900’s and is now recognised each year on the same date in March.
The first National Women’s Day (as it was originally called) was spurred on by a Ukraine-born suffragist named Clara Lemlich, who demanded better pay, shorter working hours, and improved working conditions for 15’000 garment workers who went on strike in New York.
International women’s day is still on a mission to help forge a gender equal world, free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination.
A world that is diverse, equitable and inclusive.
A world where difference is valued and celebrated.

Mother’s Day 2022
This year, the UK will celebrate Mother’s Day on 27th March 2022.
The UK date of this celebration is rooted in the Christian observance of Mothering Sunday.
This observance originated in the Middle Ages, when children who had left their families to work in domestic service were allowed to go to their home.
Mothering Sunday takes place on the fourth Sunday in the festival of Lent, exactly three weeks before Easter Sunday.
