International Women's Day Celebrateion : Chinese Women, British Sucess

Passion, possibility, dreams, entrepreneur journey, and living full color of life. A date you won't miss, a date that may change your life. Come and join us on Monday evening, 10th March 2014  @ Asia House, 63 New Cavendish St., London W1G 7LP.


International Women’s Day (IWD) is marked on March 8 every year. Started as a socialist political event, the day has been celebrated in the culture of many countries from the West to the East, from the North to the South. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration women’s economic, political, and social achievements. In 2014, the United National (UN) theme for International Women’s Day is: Inspiring Change.

Among 2 million people of Chinese origin live in the UK, nearly half of them are women. These Chinese women are active in different sectors, contribute to the UK economy and diversify British culture. Some of them have achieved very high standard and level in their fields. Unfortunately, compare to many other ethnic groups, Chinese women’s contribution and achievement are less noticed by the media and general public. By this event, we aim to increase the awareness of diverse achievement by Chinese women in British society as well as inspire younger generation to explore there potential.
