What does woman power mean to you? For some, it’s the force that helps them bust through glass ceilings without chipping a manicure.
For others, it’s the strength that allows you to carry a life in your belly and the world on your shoulders (step aside Atlas and let real mums show you how it’s done).
Tomorrow marks the centenary of International Women’s Day and there are loads of events around town to mark the sheer awesomeness of ladyhood.
We’ll be heading to the Working Mums Live fair at the Business Design Centre right here in Islington for a day of seminars, advice and inspiration.
Whether you want to start up your own business, brush up your resume and skills set or just find out about flexible and child-friendly opportunities in the market, be sure to book now for your FREE spot. Check out the web site for details on talks, creche and more.
I’m also hoping to check out the launch of the W Project. A friend of mine has her self-portrait on show as part of this exhibition of known and new female creative talent.
The W Project aims to provide female role models that are a shade more empowering than the usual ‘heiresses, sex objects, surgery addicts and emotional wrecks’ the media feeds us. Sounds top-notch.
Register for Working Mums Live, On Tue Mar 8, 10am-5pm at Business Design Centre, 52 Upper St, N1.
Visit W Project online. Private view Tue Mar 8, 6.30-9pm. Exhibition runs Mar 9-11, 10am-6pm at Russian Club Gallery, E8 4DA
