international womens dayInternational Womens Day Grants 2014

The grant applications for events to celebrate IWD in March 2014 have been 
launched today. 

Please can you circulate the details to as many community groups and 
organisations in your ward as possible. As ever we are keen to ensure a 
spread of events targeted at different communities across the city. 

Manchester’s chosen theme for International Women’s Day 2014 is ‘Women as 
Peacemakers’. Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the start of the 
First World War, International Women’s Day 2014 is the perfect opportunity 
to celebrate the role that women have played and continue to play in 
conflict resolution and peace building. There will be grants of up to £500 
to create IWD events and activities in March 2014, and groups are invited 
to apply. 

Visit manchester.gov.uk/iwdgrants for more information and an application 
form, or email internationalwomensdayinfo@manchester.gov.uk

There are many untold stories about the lives of women in our city whose 
acts of courage, campaigning ability or sheer determination have 
contributed to peace at all levels.  March 2014 will be an opportunity to 
celebrate the lives of these women and ensure their stories are told. 

For those of you on social media here are some suggested tweets to start
