14th February 2018
Celebrate International Women’s Day with Bonnie Fechters (Thu 1 Mar, 7.30pm) and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Thu 8 Mar, 7.30pm). Both events will be followed by a discussion around inspirational women and how we continue to #PressForProgress today.
Bonnie Fechters (Thu 1 Mar, 7.30pm) starts our celebrations, with an inspiring evening of intimate and heart-warming songs and stories of women who have stood up to injustice and oppression, changing our lives forever. From the Scottish witch-killings to the Vietnam War, from Syrian refugees to the photographer who rode through Mongolia to record other women’s lives, it really is an evening to inspire.
There will also be an opportunity to enjoy the award-winning performance from the fabulous Frances McDormand in Three Billboard’s Outside Ebbing, Missouri (Thu 8 Mar, 7.30pm). This will be followed by a discussion, led by Julie Ellen and a panel of professional women, on how we continue to #PressForProgress and the influence of campaigns like #MeToo and #TimesUp
