Douglas Street Community Celebrates International Women's Day... In Style!
A community rouses itself to honour women and their struggles for a better world
A 'miracle' of grassroots community organising happened yesterday – the community of Douglas Street, Cork came together and hosted an incredible diverse and immensely satisfying celebration of International Women's Day!
This was a remarkable day of events dedicated to the celebration and recognition of the achievements of women and to the celebration of the contribution of women down the centuries to the struggles for human rights, workplace rights, social justice and democracy worldwide. A programme of over forty events organised on a shoestring (a shoestring gladly supplied jointly by the Independent Workers' Union and the Cork branch of the Workers' Solidarity Movement) went ahead with almost no hitches, with a truly diverse range of talks, workshops, activities, performances and more that brought hundreds to Douglas St. From ten in the morning to very late at night.
