It is International Women’s Day tomorrow and we are celebrating all week with various talks and events at the Museum of Liverpool.

Today’s talk, ‘Our Amazing Liverpool Women’ at 3pm will include many inspirational women featured across the museum. Just one example is Catherine Harvey, who aged 24 was one of 25 women to join the 1981 People’s March for Jobs to protest against injustice and to demand the right to work. You can see the sash, which Catherine made and wore on the march on display in The People’s Republic gallery.

This is followed by a pamper day for mums with young children tomorrow. Then on Sunday find out about Liverpool’s suffragettes or get creative in a ‘Mum and me’ crafternoon – a great way to spend Mother’s Day. Full details of all events across our venues are on the International Women’s Day events page.
