To celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD) on March the 8th, The Trailblazery will join forces with Herstory to present “Women Rising’: a unique IWD Gathering. This Moon Medicine special experience is dedicated to shining a spotlight on some of the inspiring trailblazing female activists living in Ireland today. Read on to learn more!
“Another world is not only possible, she is on her way.
On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing….”
‘Women Rising’ will take place on March the 8th at the famous Pillar Room on the Rotunda Hospital site with host Kathy Scott (founder and creative director of The Trailblazery), collaborator Melanie Lynch (founder and CEO of Herstory) and guest luminaries Razan Ibraheem (Irish-Syrian journalist, feminist and UN refugee speaker) and Salome Mbugua (researcher, gender equality activist and human rights advocate). They will also be joined by Afro-Irish singer and songwriter Tolü Makay. Together, they will share their stories as women from a range of cultural backgrounds who are advocating for social justice, gender equality and human rights in the world today.
Kathy says, “Moon Medicine is an invitation for women in Ireland and globally to come together, share stories and celebrate our creative feminine life force. We are here to empower and elevate women from all walks of life. We are delighted to collaborate with Herstory to create a platform for a host of multicultural female activists whose courageous stories need to be heard, witnessed and felt in Ireland right now”
Melanie adds, “Herstory is exploring the insight and fact that emigration and immigration are two sides of the same story. To be human is to migrate, share stories and our common humanity. Herstory is delighted to collaborate with The Trailblazery for a special IWD Moon Medicine event that will give the stage to awe-inspiring women from diverse cultures who now call Ireland their home and enhance Irish culture with their energy, compassion, and wisdom.”
€35 is the drop-in rate. Advance booking is recommended, as spaces will be limited. The organisers have extended a Bestie Bundle offer, so that you can bring your best pal along to the proceedings. They believe that Moon Medicine should be available for women from all walks of life, no matter what your financial circumstances are, and have created a selection of Welcome Bundle offers for people who may need support.
