Today, 8th March 2017, is International Women's Day (IWD). It's aim is to raise greater awareness and stimulate action to create a more gender-inclusive world. Believing that we are all equal in God's sight, we support this aim of greater fairness and equality.
This year's theme is, 'Be Bold For Change'. The IWD website challenges each of us to play our own small part in bringing about change by challenging bias and inequality, campaigning against violence, forging women's advancement, celebrating women's achievements and championing women's education. For each of those headings, it has further, practical suggestions.
For instance, on challenging bias, it encourages us to:

  • query all-male speaking panels
  • pull people up on exclusive language
  • challenge stereotypes
  • call it out when women are excluded
  • monitor the gender pay gap
  • point out bias and highlight alternatives
  • call for diverse candidate shortlists
  • embrace inclusive leadership
  • redefine the status quo.

    This Saturday 20th July, at 7.30pm, the SOS meet with a theme of Space & Junk. It is a frightening thought but that small step for man happened 50 years ago, yes 50! The other small step to obesity is also celebrated on this date with National Junk Food Day.
