In addition, this year we are celebrating International Women's Day on Friday 8th March
Collectively we can all play a part
Collective action and shared responsibility for driving a gender-balanced world is key. International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women - while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance.
As part of this celebration Joanna Foat, author of 'Lumberjills - Britain's Forgotten Army' will be talking about her book. Joanna discovered the story of the Lumberjills while she was a PR consultant for the Forestry Commission. She spent four years' researching and travelling the country to meet over sixty Lumberjills. These ‘Lumberjills’, as they were affectionately known, replaced the men who had answered the call to war, carrying out the arduous tasks of felling, snedding, loading lorries and trains and sawmilling timber all over Scotland. A large percentage of this was mining timber, used to keep Britain's engine turning during these difficult times.
