On March 8, Annie Lennox will march across the Millennium Bridge in London to celebrate the centenary of International Women’s Day, and she wants you to join her.
The March – organized by Women for Women International – will leave Borough Market at 11am, walking along the south side of the river to Millennium Bridge, crossing the Thames to the North side then continuing west along the river walk way past Victoria Embankment Gardens, then crossing back along Hungerford Bridge to the South side of the river and finishing at the Royal Festival Hall for speeches.
Since 1993, Women for Women International has mobilized more than 125,000 women and men in 105 countries worldwide to reach out and support women survivors of war – one woman at a time.
The charity empowers women survivors of war to move toward economic self-sufficiency with a year-long program of direct aid, rights education, job skills training and small business development.
Bridge events are being planned on five continents, in 24 countries and in 9 different time zones. Find out more here.
