Harrow to commemorate International Women’s Day

In Harrow, the upcoming International Women’s Day (IWD) on 8th March is being commemorated with a series of community and safety-focused events, as revealed in the latest edition of the My Harrow Talk newsletter from Harrow Council.

This year’s theme, “Inspire Inclusion,” aims to celebrate and empower women through various community-led initiatives.

Kicking off the celebrations, local charity VIA is set to host a coffee morning on 6 March. The event promises engaging speakers and a special free gift for all women who attend, bringing a sense of community and support.

This gathering is an excellent opportunity for local women to connect and share experiences in a supportive environment.

The highlight of the IWD celebrations in Harrow will be an event organised by the Harrow police on 8th March, focusing on the critical issue of violence against women and girls.

Scheduled to take place in Harrow Town Centre, the event will start at 2pm on St Anns Road, offering advice and support from the local neighbourhood team. This initiative is part of a broader effort to raise awareness and provide assistance to those affected by violence.

In addition, from 4pm, guests are invited to participate in a “walk and talk” session, which will commence outside St George’s shopping centre. This session aims to create a safe space for discussions on preventing violence and promoting women’s safety in the community.

For those seeking additional resources and support related to violence against women and girls, Harrow Council’s website has more info.

For those interested in finding out more, further details about International Women’s Day and its global significance can be explored on the official IWD website.
