International Women’s Day Events – Cross Country

We have been struggling to keep up with all the wonderful International Women’s Day Events which will be taking place throughout March. So, we thought it would be best to pull together a list and share with everyone. Please note, we are not organising any of these events, so any questions should be sent to the organising bodies.

We have tried to include as much as we can, but if we have missed any events out and you would like them to be added please get in contact. As always The Glasgow Women’s Library hold amazing events all year round so please check out there site.
