South Lancashire’s Soroptimists made a ‘grand gesture’ to mark International Women’s Day (IWD). To illustrate the maxim “An equal world is an enabled world” members struck the equals pose.
Sriya Kulupana, the Region’s Programme Action Officer said, “On 8th March we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and, this year, the acceleration of gender equality.
“However, the IWD campaign is not a one-day-a-year phenomenon. It runs all year long.
“Soroptimists worldwide form a global volunteer movement. Working together they transform the lives of women and girls – every day of the year.”
