International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

The 2020 women’s day theme is #EachforEqual


Our Events

The Women’s Day events in Crewe Winsford and now Ellesmere Port are considered, by our team, to be flagship events for Motherwell Cheshire and for the women we support. The events have evolved since their inception in 2015. The additional event in Winsford is now a standing event, and the Crewe venue has moved from the library, to the Lifestyle Centre in 2017 to South Cheshire College in 2018, and has remained in the college ever since, never mind the varied content and growing marketplace.

All our past events were evaluated (copies of which can be provided on request) and this together with the development of our organisation as a whole are shaping the plans for 2020.
