All around the world, International Women's Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality.
The Women of Shorter Chapel AME Church are going to "Make It Happen in 2015" Our Women's Day theme "Women Marching for Christ" encourages the effective action for advancing and recognizing women. Our Colors this year will be Red and White for the Hearts and Pure Souls of Faith marching towards a new and successful beginning for women in solidarity and prayer.
Each year International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8. The first International Women's Day was held in 1911. Thousands of events occur to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women. Organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women's groups, corporations and the media celebrate the day.
From 1908, the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) in Great Britain adopted the colour scheme of purple, white and green to symbolise the plight of the Suffragettes. Purple symbolised justice and dignity - two values strongly associated with women's equality. The three colours were used for banners, flags, rosettes and badges to show solidarity.
We Are Looking Forward to Seeing You in Celebration of Women's Day!!!
