International Women’s Day

NHP International Women’s Day 7th March #breakthebias

Posted on

On Monday 7 March 2022, North Halifax Partnership celebrated International Women’s Day at Forest Cottage in Ovenden and what an amazing day we’ve had!

After two years of Covid restrictions, the NHP came back with this vibrant event, celebrating International Women’s Day.

 

In the main hall we had a brilliant choice of informative stalls from local services, not forgetting our very own Community Organisers. At the sports hall, we had a unique opportunity to try archery and boxercise with Positive Impact Sports.

We received inspiring words from the exceptional women among us and a lovely bit of lunch with a lovely slice of cake on the side.

 

Many thanks to Karen Scanlon, Natalie Ratner and Rachel Swaby for putting a brilliant day together!

Organiser, Karen Scanlon shared:

54 women from the North Halifax area came together to celebrate each other’s achievements. There was a marketplace, with various stalls, offering useful information and activities to help improve women’s lives.

Some of the organisations included Healthy Minds Calderdale, The Calderdale Women’s Centre, The Faye Knowles Chapman Foundation, Calderdale Sexual Exploitation Team, West Yorkshire Police, Bluebird Care, Staying Well, The North Halifax Community Organisers, Calderdale Breast Screening, Calderdale Recycling Team, Illingworth Messenger and Lifechanges Women’s Support Group.

There was also The Pottery Cafe who provided a relaxing painting session. For those who wanted something a bit more upbeat, Positive Impact Sports provided Boxing and Archery, alongside nutritious, healthy smoothies.

 

 

Inspirational speakers delivered heart-warming talks about what has empowered them on their personal life journeys. This was followed by an afternoon tea which was enjoyed by everyone as conversation filled the room.

 

Some of the feedback included:

“There was so much information available for us women.”

“The speeches were a highlight.”

“10/10 – Excellent Event.”

“Inspirational Women and a good networking opportunity.”

“It helped me reflect of how well I have done personally in my life.”

“Loved the Pottery, so relaxing.”

“I had a feeling of humbleness after meeting so many wonderful women I am glad to be a woman and proud of my achievements.”

Overall, the day was a huge success filled with positivity and inspiration. North Halifax Partnership would like to say a huge thank you to the Community Champions at Morrisons Illingworth for donating sanitary wear so we could promote period poverty in North Halifax. We would also like to say thank you to all those that attended and contributed towards making the event a success.

We hope you all enjoyed it.

Africaniwa: She Chose to Challenge March 26

Posted on Updated on

This Friday 26th March at 6pm, in celebration of IWD2021, Africaniwa is proud to present: She Chose to Challenge, a Photo Exhibition.

Marking International Women’s Day, we are reminded that a challenged world is an alert world. And at a time where recent events call us to challenge masculine violence and empower women to #reclaimthestreets, we might have pondered, ‘what would it look like to have a world where women lived free from the patriarchy?’.

Over 30 years ago, one woman chose to make this a reality for the women who live in Umoja, a village where only women and children live. Meet Rebecca Lolosoli as we hear her story and mission in founding Umoja and what life is like living without men.

This month in celebration of IWD2021, Africaniwa is proud to present She Chose to Challenge, a Photo Exhibition.

Click on the link to register for your free ticket. You will receive the zoom link on the day of the exhibition:

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/she-chose-to-challenge-tickets-146039916321

Africaniwa are raising funds to help Umoja village after their main source of revenue, tourism, has been hampered by the pandemic. This will be used to buy basic provisions like food, chalk for classrooms and toys such as footballs for the children. Every little helps so please spare whatever you can give at PayPal to esenetekyerema@gmail.com. Thank you.

International Women’s Day for young women #ChooseToChallenge Friday 12 February

Posted on

‘Who runs the world? GIRLS!’ – Beyoncé Knowles

Did you know that International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on 8th March? International Women’s Day is celebrated globally to remind us to come together to celebrate the achievements and voices of women and to empower women to keep fighting for equality. This year the theme is #ChooseToChallenge – a challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.

In a world where we are experiencing unprecedented change, we want to give a space and voice for the next generation of women who will be shaping the post pandemic world. If you are a girl or young woman aged 8 – 18, we need your help to put together an event in Halifax for #IWD2021. We’re getting together on Friday 12th February at 3pm by Zoom and invite you to tell us the things that are most important to you and what you’d like to do to celebrate International Women’s Day 2021.

Check out internationalwomensday.com for some inspiration but remember to bring your own ideas too. Looking forward to seeing you there!
