The volunteer-led International Women’s Day Festival in Derby grows each year as a showcase for women and girls in the community, organisations, sport, arts, craft, business, education and more. It is a festival, as the stage is a continual stream of local talent in music, dance and spoken word. The tents were full of stalls of local organisations supporting and empowering women. This is not just a women’s event, it is for anyone and everyone.
