International Women’s Day: what’s on this year?

Celebrate International Women’s Day 2018 with the best things to do, events and activities happening across London

Violeta Beral

International Women's Day takes place every year on March 8 (a Thursday in 2018) to celebrate and commemorate the countless achievements of women around the world. It’s also a time to recognise the many gender inequalities that still exist today, and talk about what we can do to create a fairer, more blanced world.

The theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2018 is #PressForProgress and as always, there will be events taking place across the UK, including lots of London activity. We’ve rounded up some of the best IWD happenings below, including the unmissable WOW Festival at the Southbank Centre.

The experience focuses on Lillian Ball, a dressmaker and mother from Tooting, who was arrested for smashing a window in 1912.
