Happy International Women's Day!

I hope you've had a wonderful International Women's Day, everyone!

To celebrate, I went down to the lovely National Waterfront Museum to their Wonderful Welsh Women event, which was really interesting, discovered some amazing stuff that Welsh women in the past have done. Then we all particpated in the Join Me on the Bridge campaign (More info here!) and met some fantastic people! It was a shame only myself and 3 other people from the SU got involved though...though the nice ladies from the Soroptimists said it was lovely to see some younger blood doing their bit :)

But we did agree unfortunately that maybe there wasn't as much going on as we'd hoped, especially as it's the 100th anniversary of the day. Not to say we didn't enjoy the event, of course, just that maybe a bit more could have been done to raise awareness! However, the fact the day has lasted in public consciousness for 100 years is awareness-raising enough itself, and it's still such an important thing to celebrate. Looking at the fantastic achievements of past and present women today has really hit that home.

But for me, and many others, every day is Women's Day :)
