International Women's Day Festival

at the MAC

4 - 11 March 2021

On Thursday 4 March, we kick off a busy programme of events as part of International Women’s Day 2021 activities.

International Women’s Day Festival is a time for debate, education, and celebration. The aim is to create shared digital spaces for you, the audience, along with academics, community organisers, activists and artists to explore universal feminist issues. The festival doesn’t cover everything, rather it responds to what you, our audiences, wanted to talk about.

We’re excited and honoured to have an outstanding line-up of women taking part in our 2021 festival. These speakers will cover an array of topics from maternity rights, assisted fertility and alternative routes to parenthood, mental health and wellbeing, hormones, race, sex and trauma. The ambition is to discuss nuanced subjects with empathy and acceptance at their heart (and to have some fun too).

Due to Covid-19, we can’t host any in-person events, however, that won’t stop us online. At a time of such uncertainty, our digital events will be a source of inspiration and motivation, as well as comfort and reassurance. We hope that through conversation we are emboldened by a collective unity to better support one another and promote positive change.
