For the past 100 years, International Women’s Day (IWD) has been celebrated around the world on March 8. Hundreds of events occur not just on this day but throughout March to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.
Organisations, governments and women’s groups around the world choose different themes each year that reflect global and local gender issues. I decided my blog should have a theme for IWD as well so I’m going to begin a series of interviews with some amazing women I have met during the eight months since my novel was published. It’s been quite a ride! One of the best parts of this journey is discovering the fabulous community of women involved in the world of writing and publishing and all the other aspects that revolve around the literary arts. (Not to discriminate, there are terrific men involved too … but this is about the ladies.) The supportive, collaborative, welcoming spirit one finds within this world of words is a joy to discover. I’ll post the first interview in the next few days.
