International Women’s day 2017
Peace, Solidarity and Sustenance
The theme of International Women’s Day 2017 is Peace, Solidarity & Sustenance; Keeping Body and Soul Together. Every year we celebrate IWD to mark the political, economic, social and cultural gains of women while highlighting our continued fight for equality.
In this time of global turmoil we are witnessing the biggest refugee crisis since WWII. Across the island of Ireland there are unprecedented numbers of homeless people and families relying on foodbanks. We have now lost more people to suicide than we did throughout the history of the conflict. Our political institutions have collapsed and we are facing into a period of political uncertainty.
This is a time when many women are feeling insecure and fearful of the future.
Now is the time for change and we are that change.
