Respect Celebrates International Women’s Day

Birmingham Respect women's fundraiser200 women came together on the evening of Friday 7th March as part of Respect’s celebration of International Women’s Day 2008.

The Women’s Gala mixed politics with eating, drinking, dancing, henna art, raffles, jewellery and fashion stalls. This gave us the opportunity to reach out to and engage with a whole new layer of people not familiar with our politics or who may otherwise not attend the usual political rally or public meeting.

A good time was had by all with many asking when the next event was taking place, and in the process we raised much needed funds for our forthcoming election campaign.
