2018 International Women's Day


Started by the Suffragettes in the early 1900's, the first International Women's Day was celebrated in 1911. International Women's Day belongs to all communities everywhere - governments, companies, charities, educational institutions, networks, associations, the media and more.

Thursday March 8th is International Women's Day but JNCC will be celebrating its brilliant women all week with a series of interviews.
