International Women's Day 2015

Sunday 6th March 2015 is International Women's Day 2015.  
 
This Year's global theme is 'Make it Happen', encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women around the world.
 
Women make up 51% of the population in the UK. However, only 23% of MPs, 25% of judges and 21% FTSE 100 Company directors in the UK are female. Women working full time in the UK earn, on average, 9.5% less than men.
 
A full report of progress made since the first International Women's Day was held in 1911 is available at www.parliament.uk
