What to expect on the day
CARE International’s senior gender advisor Helen Pankhurst will be hosting our ‘She Leads in Crisis’ panel discussion, joined by three women – Oladosu Adenike, Dr Ihlas Altinci and Dr Rachel Clarke – who are making a difference on the front lines in their fields.
We’ll also hear from Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, a political and women’s rights activist and the author of This Is Why I Resist: Don’t Define My Black Identity (£20, Headline).
Poet and writer Nikita Gill will be performing a poem written especially for #March4Women at the event on Sunday 7 March. Nikita is the author of Where Hope Comes From: Healing Poetry For The Heart, Mind And Soul (£14.99, Orion), a new book of poetry written against a backdrop of global crisis.
Friends Megan Markwick and Lily Somerville are the women behind Ider, a London-based band whose lyrics explore themes of sisterhood and female empowerment. They’ll be performing some of their contemporary pop songs at Stylist’s #March4Women event.
Urban Voices Collective and Bond Quartet will be performing You Don’t Own Me, the classic feminist anthem made famous by Lesley Gore in 1963. This version has been rearranged by award-winning composer David Arnold with an all-woman team of sound engineers at Air Studios.
