A huge thank you to our Volunteers who helped out at Swindon's International Women's Day event on Saturday. 

International Women's Day is celebrated in countries across the world to value the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world.

It also aims to highligt inequalities and difficulties women face.

An example is new data published by the Fawcett Society that despite the Equal Pay Act being introduced 40 years ago, on average women earn £5,732 less than men every year.   This equates to £300,000 less over their working lives than men.

Swindon's event was well attended and a great day was had by everyone!
