GMB To Celebrate International Women’s Day With Event At The TUC Women’s Conference In London

Over three hundred thousand women members of GMB welcome the opportunity to participate in marking the International Women's Day.

Delegates from GMB representing over three hundred thousand women members attending the TUC Women’s Conference will attend an event on Wednesday 12 March during the Conference to celebrate International Women’s Day.

The event will mark the achievements of the trade union movement in the struggle for the liberation of women and will highlight campaigns and solidarity action globally in the struggle. There will be speakers and entertainment.

GMB women across the UK are joining in local events set up to mark International Womens Day 2014 on Saturday March 8th.

International Women's Day is marked on March 8 every year to celebrate women's economic, political, and social achievements.

Kamaljeet Jandu, GMB National Equality and Inclusion officer, said “Over three hundred thousand women members of GMB welcome the opportunity to participate in marking  International Women's Day for 2014.

Many women across the world remain vulnerable and exploited. In the UK, women have been in the frontline against this Government's austerity measures and deregulation of labour market.”
