International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is ‘Choose To Challenge’. A challenged world is an alert world. And from challenge comes change.

Get involved this year with the Carers Leeds challenge for International Women’s Day. Complete a sentence and send it back. This could be written, a picture or made into something arty!

You can choose “The biggest challenge I have overcome is…” or “I will challenge myself to…”

Send your response to Lydia by e-mail to, or call her on 0743 202 3823.

We’ll discuss some of these challenges and learn from other women at our International Women’s Day event on 08 March.
