International Women’s Day, originating in early 20th century through campaigns for women’s right to vote, is a celebration of the successes and achievements of women, female identifying and non binary people, as well as an open invitation to discuss discrimination and challenges still fervent in society. These events in Birmingham intend to empower, teach and create a dynamic space for those who may not have one any other time.
