Make it happen

This Sunday 8th March is International Women's Day. All around the world, people are called to celebrate women's achievements.

This year the theme is #MakeItHappen. This theme calls for effective action to recognise women and celebrate their achievements. International Women's Day continues to strive for true gender equality.

International Women's Day has been celebrated for over one hundred years, beginning in 1911. Thousands of events across the world will take place over the weekend to recognise women and the achievements they have made.

At Ramsdens we have a team full of great, strong, high achieving women from a variety of backgrounds. We feel it is vitally important to support International Women's Day's call to #MakeItHappen.

The colour scheme for this years day is purple. (We've even 'purpled' our Facebook avatar.) You may ask why purple?

Purple, white and green were the colours used from 1908 to symbolise the campaign of the suffragettes. The colour purple symbolised justice and dignity - two themes clearly associated with the drive for gender equality.

Women all over the world from a whole spectrum of race, sexual orientation, religion continue to fight for gender equality. We need to continue to push to #MakeItHappen. So, this Sunday 8th March join your fellow women across the world to celebrate International Women's Day!

To celebrate International Women's Day, our Wakefield office are undertaking a spinning challenge....spinning for 6 hours continuously, raising money for the Jane Tomlinson Appeal. You can follow #teamWakefield and their progress on our Facebook page......good luck ladies! Huge thanks to Fit24 Wakefield for the donation of the spinning bike.
