Talks, films, workshops and more to recognise the women around us
We don't need a special reason to celebrate women, but the 8th of March every year is a very invigorating time to do so. It's the period of time when the world comes together to celebrate the achievements of women everywhere and call for greater progress towards gender equality. Call up the women in your life who inspire you, and mark the day with them at one of these activities happening around Singapore! Whether you're looking to kick back and have a chill girls' night out, get serious and discuss how we can move towards greater gender equality, there's a meaningful activity for you.
7. Write empowering messages to women (and it’s also for a good cause!)
Popular French eatery Merci Marcel is partnering with women’s rights advocacy group AWARE this International Women’s Day to launch #NotesToWomen, a movement to spread positive inspiration among women. Visit the cafe on 8 March, from 8am to 9pm, to write a little note with an empowering message, and post it up on the “Women’s Wall” the cafe will set up specially for the event. Don’t forget to take a photo of your note and share it on Facebook or Instagram (tag @awaresingapore and #notestowomen), because Merci Marcel will donate $3 to AWARE for each photo! What a great cause to participate in while you get brunch at the cafe!
