Drop-in to join us making placards honouring diverse inspiring women who changed the world for us – #WeRiseOnTheShouldersOfGiants + pom-poms in Suffragette colours ready to decorate our International Women’s Day Festival (9th March) and to take on the women’s rights march on the big day. Free, family-friendly, kids welcome with adult supervision. Made possible by IWD Derby volunteer power with thanks to funding from Rosa UK Woman To Woman fund, and working with Spiral Arts.

Venue: Spiral Arts, Grove Lodge, on the Derby Arboretum park. Street parking available nearby and pay and display at Grove Street Car Park.

Did you know? The Suffragettes carried names of inspiring women past and present on placards on big processions. We’ll be continuing this tradition at International Women’s Day, which has been celebrated in and around Derby for over 100 years.
