The arts celebrate International Women's Day

(Premium content) Premium content

We celebrate the women in the arts who are making it happen, and the events that are highlighting their successes as well as the issues women face today.

With the 40th anniversary of International Women's Year and International Women's Day on Sunday 8 March, the arts is set to celebrate. From a festival all about women and art exhibitions that support women artists, International Women’s Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women across the globe.

This year’s theme is ‘Make It Happen,’ and we congratulate the countless authors, artists, designers, arts managers, publishers and countless others in the arts that are doing just that. Yet a long road still lies ahead, and International Women’s Day should be one of many, many more that bring to light issues facing all women, prompt inclusion in this conversation and call for greater equality. ArtsHub has compiled several events that both celebrate the successes of women while also dissecting and discussing the issues woman face today.
