International Women’s Day – celebrating 100 years

On 8th March 2011 International Women’s Day celebrated a centenary of female achievements. There were hundreds of events held in the UK including a Women of the World festival at the Southbank centre in London. Annie Lennox headlined a concert called Equals Live at the Royal Festival Hall together with Kate Nash, Paloma Faith and VV Brown.

Annie Lennox said “Southbank Centre presents EQUALS Live will be a wonderful way for people of all generations to come together to celebrate International Women’s Day, debate the inequalities that still exist and raise their voices in solidarity with women across the globe.”

EQUALS is a partnership of more than 20 leading charities brought together by Annie Lennox to celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day and step up the call for a more equal world.
