Hi Baukjen here.
We may all be eating pancakes to celebrate Shrove Tuesday today but March 8th also marks the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. This day is all about celebrating outstanding and inspiring women throughout history. In many countries this is a day where men follow a tradition of honouring the women in their lives with flowers and children give small gifts to their mothers.
Here, the Mayor of London has created an exhibition at City Hall that celebrates 40 women who have strong connections with London and who have made a significant contribution to their chosen area. The exhibition includes women from all spheres, from those involved in politics to fashion.
