In The Pit Village school visitors can also make a rosette in suffragette colours and on Saturday, 11th March there will be the singing of women’s songs.

Join the Knicker Revolution!

The theme for International Women’s Day 2018 is #pressforprogress, progress for equality for all, progress for ending violence against women, girls and other vulnerable people. Newcastle has been at the forefront of women’s radical action, from the Suffragettes plotting to break windows as they drank tea in Fenwick’s café in the 1900s, to the first Women’s Liberation conference held outside London in the 1970s, to being one of only four British cities to host a Slutwalk in 2011.
