A Joyous Celebration
Happy International Women's Day so much to say...I mean all the stops were pulled out as the International Women;s Day Derby team created a space for celebration and remembering.
So many community stalls representing a myriad of causes and organisations and the networking was amazing. VoxFemme was present with our Heritage Lottery Funded, On The Shoulders of Giants Exhibition (part of the Deeds Not Words Towards Liberation Project). We had more than 350 visitors and the feedback was magnificent. So very positive and so many women, girls and men leaving the exhibition with comments like
"...Derbyshire produced some amazing women"
"Never heard of some of those women....how did you find them"
" Wow I did not know she was local ..."
"I am so glad I came"
"I can't believe didn't know about any of this stuff"
"When can I see the whole Exhibition. I want to bring my daughter"
"I am blown away"
"...really enjoyed that"
"...I feel a bit emotional"
"Why don;t they teach this in school"
