Celebrating International Women's Day

Posted by

This week saw plenty of celebrations and awareness-raising to support International Women's Day - in London we've seen everything from rallies and speeches to, on a local level, my inspirational sister-in-law organising a lovely lunch to celebrate all the women at her workplace - plenty of men came along too and a great time was had by all!
