Faversham Celebrates International Women’s Day. 

Faversham Celebrates International Women’s Day because we care about issues that are specific to women. We care about analysing the issues that can lead to vulnerability and this is a discussion that we want everybody to be part of.

We celebrate business in Faversham, and how willingly people join together to support creativity and innovation. We value all genders/sexes and their contribution to the town and our lives and welcome all to join us in celebrating our achievements, and empathically learning and growing with us.

We want everybody to be part of this event where we celebrate the best of us. We all have brothers, son, or fathers, or work colleagues that are male and value the rich positive contributions they bring to our lives. We do not believe that equality can be achieved by reverse discrimination and we invite people of all sexes and genders to join with us in this positive celebratory festival.

See the face book event ‘Square Root-Faversham Celebrates International Women’s Day’ for more details on each event.
