International Women's Day

Published 08 March 2024

Today is International Women's Day. The campaign holds great significance for Housing for Women as it embodies our mission and values. This year's theme, 'Inspire Inclusion,' underscores our commitment to empowering women and ensuring access to secure housing for all.

Since our establishment in 1934, we have led the charge in championing women's rights across diverse communities. Inspired by the resilience of suffragettes, we honour their legacy by providing tailored support services to vulnerable women in the UK. Our mission is clear: to empower women and challenge societal injustices.

From aiding trafficked women to supporting those transitioning from prison and helping isolated older women, our dedication remains steadfast. Central to our mission is our commitment to helping women and children escaping domestic violence and abuse.

International Women's Day is an opportunity for us to celebrate women's resilience and achievements globally, acknowledging progress while confronting ongoing challenges. As we mark this day, we reaffirm our commitment to creating a world where every woman can thrive.

At Housing for Women, we are united in our mission to empower women and challenge inequality. Let us use this day to redouble our efforts in the pursuit of gender equality, advocating for the rights and voices of women everywhere. Together, we can build a society where every woman is valued, respected, and empowered to fulfil her potential.
