Each year around the world, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on the 8 March.
Many events take place not just on this day but throughout March to celebrate the economic, political and social achievements of women.
The RFL’s North West regional development team is running a number of female based activities throughout the year and will see a jam packed week of female Rugby League specific activity take place from 5 March until 12 March.
Rugby League activity will feature across the North West region featuring contact Rugby League Festivals, Touch Rugby League tasters sessions for teachers, Tag Rugby League try it sessions and one of the biggest school competitions in the UK, the Carnegie Champion Schools competition starting with the regional preliminary stages of this year’s competition.
Dan Parkinson, RFL North West Regional Development officer commented on the big push taking place on female activity.
“Female Rugby League is being delivered all across the North West region. We are trying to grow the amount of female participants that take part in Rugby League through playing, coaching, volunteering and officiating and we are doing this by offering many different variations of the sport. We have contact Rugby League through the Champion Schools competition, community club festivals, Women’s RLC and educational contact series for Further education and higher education students. For participants new to the sport we have Touch and Tag Rugby League being delivered from primary school participants up to secondary school teachers and tutors. We really do feel we have an offer that is inclusive to all!”

International Women’s Day and End Violence Against Women events – Scottish Borders 7-20th March 2011
Posted 23 February 2011on:
A march through Galashiels on Friday, March 18, will be one of the highlights of a programme of events organised by the Scottish Borders Violence Against Women Partnership, writes Andrew Keddie.
The evening march is part of the region’s belated contribution to a global campaign to eliminate violence against women.
The programme had been due to take place between two key dates last year – November 25, which was International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, and December 10, which was International Human Rights Day.
“The idea was to make the link between women’s human rights and their experience of violence,” explained partnership co-ordinator Andrea Beavon. “But due to the bad weather in December, we were forced to cancel the majority of the events, so we are re-scheduling the so-called ‘16 days of action programme’ to coincide with International Women’s Day on March 8.
Ms Beavon said the purpose of the initiative was to raise awareness of violence against women in the Borders and to get feedback from local communities.
“We also want improved opportunities for women and children in the Borders to seek safety and support, and for people to find ways of influencing and affecting change for the better.”
There has been a year-on-year increase in the number of domestic incidents reported to the police, with more than 800 reported in the region in 2010/11. The vast majority of victims were women.
“Domestic abuse is the most often repeated and least reported of all crimes, and the impact on children and the wider family cannot be underestimated,” said Ms Beavon.
“We want Borders to get involved in our days of action programme so we, as a partnership, can engage with people and make a real difference.
“We want to gain a sense of how people feel and what suggestions they may have for taking action. Violence against women is a real issue in the Borders and there is a crucial need to raise awareness and give a clear message to our communities that violence in any form is unacceptable.”
The full programme is as follows:

To honour 100 years of the global celebration of International Women’s Day South London Women Artists (SLWA) are holding their 5th exhibition at Dulwich Library from Sunday 27 February to Saturday 26 March 2011. This year the theme of the exhibition is Women and Books, drawing on the invaluable contributions that women have made to books and libraries over the years and the inspiration they receive from them.
SLWA has already been associated with books through it’s progamme of talks also held at Dulwich Library. In 2009 Althea Greenan of the Women’s Art Library at Goldsmith’s College explained how the organisation functions as an alternative public space to view and experience women’s art. Rebecca Fortnum, Camberwell College of Art, talked about her interviews with 20 internationally recognized women artists from her book “Contemporary British Women Artists: In their own words”. More recently Dr Lara Perry who is co-editing a book on feminism and art curating presented her research “What place has feminism in contemporary practice?” to the group.
The Women and Books exhibition will look at books written by women, for women, about women or which inspire women and joins International Women’s Day celebrations on 8 March when thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements. Throughout the month long exhibition a number of local schools will attend SLWA education events organized for them by artist members. There will also be free tours of the exhibition led by a SLWA member and a chance to meet some of the participating artists on Wednesdays 2 and 16 March at 3.30pm.
Over the past two years South London Women Artists have staged numerous shows including a hugely successful exhibition at Bankside Gallery in 2010. Dulwich Library is fast becoming an established venue to view and buy original SLWA artworks and the group is delighted that books will also be the theme of the show. The works will ‘bookend’ the library bookshelves, thus connecting the thoughtful experiences of library browsing and art contemplation.
The exhibition will take place at Dulwich Library from 27 February to 26 March during normal opening hours and entrance is free. There will be a private view on Thursday 3 March from 8 to 10pm.
Dulwich Library, 368 Lordship Lane, SE22 8NB
Open: Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri 9am to 8pm, Tues10am to 8pm, Sat 9am to 5pm, Sun 12pm to 4pm.
Private view Thursday 3 March, 8 to 10pm.
Free exhibition tours Wednesday 2 & 16 March at 3.30pm.

- * 17% gender pay gap between fulltime working women and men (Source: Unison factsheet #21 – women and public spending cuts)
* Following the General Election in May 2010, 143 women MPs were elected out of a total of 650 MPs (22%) (Source: Government Equalities Office)

* Women represented 85% of full time teachers in nursery and primary schools in 2001/2 (Source: Office for National Statistics)
In the 100 years since the first International Women’s Day gender equality has significantly improved but is still very evident in 2011 as the above statistics illustrate.
Learning provides a way for women of all ages and backgrounds to fulfil their potential, develop their skills for work and leisure and bring up children. However, 2011 will present many challenges for ensuring women have the right to learn and improve their lives.
At this conference celebrating the 100th International Women’s Day you will hear from a range of speakers on the day including keynote speaker Dame Gail Rebuck, Chair and CEO of Random House Publishers. Young women learners will also discuss the role learning has played in transforming their lives and the challenges they have encountered.
This is an interactive day where you will contribute to a manifesto that will outline the role learning has in improving equality for all women regardless of their age, status, health, ethnicity and sexuality.
This one day conference will be the start of a campaign that recognises the importance of learning in women’s lives and the development of a manifesto for women’s learning in the UK. Those attending the conference will:
- * Contribute to the development of a manifesto for women’s learning in the UK which will be launched later this year
* Identify practical ways to use this manifesto in their own workplace to reduce inequality and secure rights for women learners
* Celebrate the achievements of women learners and hear suggestions for continuing this celebration in the workplace.
All women and men who have a commitment to reducing gender gaps in learning and skills.

Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women.
2011 marks the centenary of International Women’s Day (IWD), first organised in 1911 by German women’s suffrage campaigner Clara Zetkin. The purpose of the day was to campaign on behalf of women around the world to get voting rights.

Archive of Women’s Voices
To celebrate this landmark anniversary, we are collecting an archive of 1000 comments quotes, memories and stories from women of all ages living in Wales in 2011.
Find out more about how you get involved and submit your voices as part of our women’s archive initiative.
International Women’s Day at the Glamorgan Business School is sponsored by Chwarae Teg.
Staff and students at Glamorgan Business School are rising to the challenge of making the women of the past proud and the women of today inspired with a week of activities around the theme ‘Women’s Voices 2011’.
