This is a day to celebrate but also to challenge, give voice to and organise around the issues women are facing.

The key speakers are grass roots women, all current or past students in Lifelong Learning, each with barriers to face, learning to undertake and challenges to surmount.

Theirs are stories of the everyday lives of women who rise-up and challenge and change the world, who show what can be achieved through learning, working together, marching together in myriad “different ways. ”

The politics are women’s politics!
