International Women's Day 2016

March 7, 2016


This year we asked the team to tell us who has inspired us, both globally and locally, here's just a few from our g list - 

Virginia Howes, Kent Midwifery (www.kentmidwiferypractice.com) She delivered Gemma's two girls giving outstanding care and support. Absolutely amazing woman who campaigns religiously for better birth. She's written a book, taken part in TV shows and radio programs and is just Gemma's hero!

Claire Webb is also amazing. She lost her little girl, Emilia when she was just 3 years old from hypoplastic left heart syndrome. She now runs a charity (www.emiliaslittleheart.org.uk) which promotes the well being of children in hospital.

Natasha Whiting founder of the charity Acorn Overseas (givey.com/acornoverseas)
100% non profit Charity for abandoned and orphaned children in a small children's shelter in the north west of Thailand on the Burmese border. There, about 45 children live who have somehow or other escaped the regime in Burma.

And of course, Christy Turlington, founder of charity Every Mother Counts the non-profit organization dedicated to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.
They inform, engage, and mobilize new audiences to take actions and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world. You can HELP by signing up to Charity Miles, and selecting Every Mother Counts - count your steps, and £££ will go to the charity of your choice - simple as that...

How will you mark the day?
Celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women.
Yet let's also be aware progress has slowed in many places across the world, so urgent action is needed to accelerate gender parity.
Leaders across the world are pledging to take action as champions of gender parity.
