100 years ago women chanted DEEDS NOT WORDS.

They left their houses, came together and decided what actions they would take to change society. They left their homes, stepped out into the streets and made people question what is wrong and what is right.

Tuesday 8th March is the centenary of International Women’s Day. It marks the 100th year that we have dedicated a day to women.

The effects of climate change are hitting women hardest. Of the 26 million people estimated to have been displaced by climate change, 20 million are women. Who knows how life will be for women in 100 years time?

It is time we found out. Join campaigners, teachers, ambassadors, women and men to celebrate International Women’s Day. Listen to Maria Beatriz Souviron – ambassador to Bolivia and Dr Diane Atkinson – the best Suffragette historian!

Find out about a group of activists who are fighting to change the future.

Get involved in delegations to Parliament, late-night street-art using 4x4s, headline grabbing actions and the Suffragette model of protest that cannot be ignored.
