Call for Events
theme: Solidarity + an Open Strand

Welcome to the website hub for York International Women’s Week (YIWW).

Each year YIWW spans International Women’s Day, 8th March, focusing on women’s rights and gender justice, as well as celebrating women’s achievements. It’s a volunteer community event, and YIWW is keen to keep the programme evolving.

We invite event applications from those interested in women’s lives and interests and, as you’ll see from the Call for Events, we are open to many different kinds of events. For 2023 our theme is ‘Solidarity’ ,and we will also have an ‘Open Strand’ for events that do not obviously fit the theme.

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.

  • Check out the Call for Events for full details. We invite applications for events both small and more extensive. We can offer support, and sometimes small grants to events striving to be inclusive and accessible. What would you like to try out? Browse the YIWW archives to see what’s been on offer in previous years – and feel free to surprise us! Email yorkwomensvoices@gmail.com if you would like to discuss your ideas.
  • When you are ready, complete the online Application Form (best option) or the Word Application Form and submit your event by the deadline of 8th January 2023 (or earlier if possible, as we work to a very tight schedule!).
