IWD Women in Newcastle - call for pom-poms

A big thank you to everyone who supported the various Women’s 100 activities during 2018. For 2019, we are promoting women-focused activities under the banner of ‘Women in Newcastle’ and will again be organising a range of events and activities in and around International Women’s Day. Our centrepiece action will be on IWD itself and will be focused on the campaign theme of period poverty, comprising a flashmob choir and a direct action which will be ‘decorating’ Grey’s Monument with red pom-poms.
