Manchester’s chosen theme for International Women’s Day 2014 is ‘Women as Peacemakers’. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War, International Women’s Day 2014 is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the role that women have played and continue to play in conflict resolution and peace building. There will be grants of up to £500 to create IWD events and activities in March 2014, and groups are invited to apply.

There are many untold stories about the lives of women in our city whose acts of courage, campaigning ability or sheer determination have contributed to peace at all levels. March 2014 will be an opportunity to celebrate the lives of these women and ensure their stories are told.
