Today is International Women’s Day. On this special day, Soroptimists are celebrating women’s achievements and raising awareness against gender bias. They are also taking action for equality and making a positive difference for women.
Many of our Bridgend Soroptimists attended a high profile virtual event at the Senedd in Cardiff focusing on Soroptimists in Wales Taking Action. It was good to welcome Joyce Watson MS and Hannah Blythyn MS to the event and to acknowledge their support of the action Soroptimists are taking across Wales. We also heard about some of the projects we are involved in to tackle domestic violence and modern day slavery, as well as how micro-finance is empowering women to rebuild their lives.
We look forward to opportunities to raise our profile at future events like this and to continuing our work to support the lives of women and girls everywhere.
