International Women’s Day
International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated globally on the 8th of March every year, and as such we hold an event to gather women from a diverse range of cultural and social backgrounds in celebration.
For over 10 years, we have held this event at the Scottish Parliament, with each year focusing on a specific theme. There are over 300 attendees, who get to hear from inspirational speakers, participate in discussions and network with a range of women.
Below you will find a summary of our most recent IWD event, including some great photos of the day!
On Saturday, 4th of March, we held our annual IWD celebration in parliament from 2pm-4pm, chaired by Alison Johnstone, Presiding Officer. This event brought together women from across Scotland, in-person and online to celebrate and discuss this years SWC theme 'Break the Bias', while also marking the 20th Anniversary of the SWC.
