About

York International Women’s Week (YIWW) is organised by volunteers and based in the local community, with growing links to women’s organisations in other parts of the world. It has existed in its current form for 5 years, with a strong legacy of decades of similar programmes. We encourage events organised by local people, and welcome our regular event organisers as well those as for whom planning an event is new.
There are many ways to get involved in YIWW. more

International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked in many countries on 8th March each year. Annually on 8 March, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements. While there are many large-scale initiatives, a rich and diverse fabric of local activity connects women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through to local women’s craft markets, theatrical performances and fashion parades. more
