By Bridgette Glover International Women’s Day was acknowledged annually on the 8th of March, to celebrate the social, political and economic achievements of women worldwide.
The University of New England Women’s Society (UNEWS) held their own event at The Stro on the 7th of March to discuss and celebrate women of the past, present and future.
Staff and students of UNE discussed the globally recognised day and its aim whilst enjoying coffee, tea, biscuits and cake and listening to classics by powerful female artists including Beyonce and Mariah Carey.
UNEWS President Kate Wood explained that “International Women’s Day is about celebrating the acheivements of women all over the world, and UNEWS are holding this event because there are many remarkable women at UNE, who we think should be admired and who we want to talk about”.
