March is traditionally a very busy time for feminists, with seemingly hundreds of marches and events all over the country! You can check out more on our Events page which our blogger Helen G maintains.

If you’ve never been to a feminist event before, why not give it a go this month?

I’m pleased to be attending Belfast’s FemFest (see more on their Facebook Page)

From 5th – 13th March 2011 Belfast FemFest will be running a festival of events as part of the wider celebrations marking the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.

We’ll be hosting a range of authors, artists and activists whose work will remind us of the need to keep standing together in solidarity to build a strong, independent feminist movement in the 21st century. There’ll be something to challenge you, something to entertain and something to celebrate. Get involved!

I’ll be speaking at the Crescent Arts Centre on March 5th with Ann Rossiter.
