8th of March 2019, UK – International Women’s Day & World Peace was celebrated with inspiring speakers Mattie Heaven, Lord Mayor and Fleur Sexton, UK Business Women of the Year 2017/2018 as well as captivating music & poetry by the Soveida Ensemble and an art exhibition from Sharman Beheshti.

The focuss of the event was to show that expression of art, music and poetry, all forms of creativity, are still suppressed in many countries in the world especially towards women. With this evening programme we all celebrated the freedom that we have here and to realise that we should cherish moments such as these. Bear in mind that it is only hundred years ago that women, such as Emmeline Pankhurst, fighted bitterly to earn the right of women to vote.
