YORK INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S WEEK

York International Women’s Week (YIWW) 2022 is over*. The events ranged from talks and activities that engaged with our theme of ‘Climate Feminism’, to challenging discussions on other issues vital to women’s lives, through to useful and fun activities that brought people together. Many thanks to all the volunteer event organisers who put so much effort into YIWW.

* HERSTORY.YORK at the Castle Museum, York until Sunday 21st August.

YIWW2023: If you would like to discuss joining the volunteer co-ordinating group, or join our mailing list for info about YIWW2023, email yorkwomensvoices@gmail.com. Each year, YIWW spans International Women’s Day, 8th March, focusing on women’s rights and gender justice, as well as  celebrate women’s achievements. YIWW is very keen to keep the programme evolving. We welcome new people who may not see their lives or interests reflected in YIWW2022, as well as those organisers who have offered events over the years and been such a vital part of the development of YIWW. Our hope is that YIWW, along with the thousands of other International Women’s Day activities, will be part of the ripples of feminism that, together, create a sea-change in the lives of self-identified women around the world.
