PHOTO exhibitions, yoga sessions and empowering talks are just a few of the events happening around Ealing to mark International Women’s Day on March 8.

Greenford Northolt and Perivale Community Federation are putting on a week-long programme to celebrate women’s contributions within the community.

Starting from Monday, March 3, visitors will be able to drop into a number of free and ticketed events across the borough.

Jackie Sear, freelance consultant for Community Development Works, said: “This is a great opportunity for people to enjoy a range of activities for and about women.”

She added: “Women contribute a lot to our society and we felt this should be celebrated this year.”
