International Women’s Day 2020 UK events including London, Manchester and Edinburgh – The Sun

INTERNATIONAL Women's Day is on Sunday, March 8, 2020 – with the theme for this year being #EachforEqual, alluding to Collective Individualism.

With several events lined up around the world to mark the day, including marches, rallies and panel discussions, what has the UK got to offer for IWD 2020?


Women of the world festival

Gender equality around the globe is the agenda for this year's festival.

The three-day-event will also seek to celebrate women and girls from all around the world.

Expect guests such as Scarlett Curtis, Edward Enninful, Naomi Wolf, Shazia Mirza and Sandi Toksvig.

The event is set to take place at the Southbank Center from March 6 to 8.

#SheStartedIt Live

To celebrate women empowerment, speakers such as Pippa Murray, Serena Guen, Shola Kaye and former Great British Bake Off star Kimberley Wilson will be on hand to present talks.

The event in its second year, kicks off on March 13 and ends the next day on March 14.


Walk for women

If you are in the mood to make some noise, this is the perfect event for you as participants are encouraged to bring 'noise instruments' and their loudest voices for some chanting.

The walk for women starts at the Cathedral Gardens and ends at St Peter's Square.

The fun does not end with the walk as there are also community-led performances to look forward to.

As per usual, the event is expected to draw in a big crowd so be prepared to network and meet new people.

Other events include a celebration of Sylvia Pankhurst and an evening of comedy.


Women's day bonfire and swim

If you're feeling brave enough to take on the cold, this event is for you.

There is a sea swim planned on March 8.

If you are not feeling to soak up the Edinburgh sea, the event will also have a beach bonfire for those who would like to feel warm and toasty.

Other events lined up in Edinburgh include an industry panel discussion and an immigration forum.
