International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day (8th March) is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. In some places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national holiday.

In 2014 Bradford and District Women’s Forum will be supporting events across the District held by local groups and organisations. We will hold the first of what we hope will become annual Women’s Summit events on Thursday 27th March. Hope to see you there!

Bradford’s Inspirational Women Awards  was founded by Fatima Patel, a fellow Bradfordian, businesswoman and editor of the UK’s first FREE Sunday newspaper.

Now in it’s third year the awards are going from strength to strength as they have now become part of the not for profit organisation Inspirational Women Foundation (an organisation that looks at supporting women, be it at home, in the community, at work or in business).

This year the Awards will be held on the 29th March 2014, Hilton Hotel, Bradford. It will be a star studded event, with the best in fashion and entertainment. The creme de la creme of the business and political industry and of course not forgetting all the finalists for Bradford’s Inspirational Women Awards!!!

All profits from the awards will go directly to the Inspirational Women Foundation
