Soroptimists in South Lancashire demonstrated their support for the mission of International Women’s Day with a simple gesture.
At the recent region meeting members crossed arms to mark the International Women’s Day theme of ‘Break the Bias’.
Many wore purple and pearls. Why? Purple signifies justice and dignity, while the pearls are white to represent purity.
International Women’s Day (8th March) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Collectively we can all Break the Bias.
