March – The month of women empowerment Consort News March 4, 2017 Charity, Events, Featured News With the International Women’s Day (8th of March) knocking on the door and the national Mother’s Day coming up on the 26th of March, is there any better time of the year to celebrate women? With the recent political happenings and movements that followed – such as the Women’s march on the 21st of January – we should all probably take a second and celebrate women in business; independent, strong women; mothers; women of all colour and shape. So this March let’s support and celebrate women by attending some of the multiple events that are taking place around the UK.
