My Sisters' House Women's Centre International Women's Day 2018 event.
Date for 2018 to be announced later in the year. Image left refers to last years event and it for reference only
Sussex International Women's Day asked the nely formed My Sisters House to run the event in 2015 as our key organisaer Annabell Alexander, had recently taken up the Chair of this new organisation. And our aim was always to encourage other womens groups to oraganse their own event with our help in the background.
Whilst their event held nothing of the international food we always laid on for the three hundred or more guest each year, their event, nevertheless saw some 120 women though the door.
Our own dispkay at the evnet was run in conjunction with Arun District Council to promote democracy and a voting booth was ptovided to show just how easy voting really is. SIWD created mock voting slips to give women the whole experience.
Our 2018 event will make so much more of the democracy issues as we celebrate 100 years of the Representations of the People Act5, which finally gave some women the vote.
