International Women's Day, which takes place annually on 8th March, is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
While Wirral's town halls will fly the flag (quite literally) for the international awareness day this week, local charity Tomorrow's Women Wirral (TWW), will hold an empowering event with more than 100 women expected to attend.
The event will host inspiring talks from representatives of Tranmere Rovers Football Club, Merseyside Police and the charity's own patron Dame Lorna Muirhead.
These talks will also be punctuated by powerful performances from TWW’s Empowering Voices Choir.
The event, which takes place on Friday 6th March 2020, will run from 12pm – 3pm at Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, Beckwith Street East, Birkenhead CH413JE. It is open to adult women over the age of 18 with free entry and the opportunity to attend the charity's annual general meeting (AGM) and enjoy a free lunch.
Alongside the chance to network with the many charities and organisations who will hold awareness stalls at the event, there will also be the chance to take part in their '#EachForEqual' group photo, in keeping with the theme for International Women's Day 2020.
Speaking of the event, Angela Murphy, TWW's Chief Executive Officer, said: "Our annual International Women’s Day and AGM is a huge celebratory event in the TWW diary. Attendance grows more and more each year and we are proud of the impact that this event has on local women.
"It is a celebration of all women, highlighting women's successes, addressing issues of gender disparity and leading in the movement for women's empowerment. Any 18+ woman is welcome to attend free of charge, the more the merrier."
