March is Women's Month

Dear Members

Celebrate yourselves in all that you do and achieve, March is our month to shout from the rooftops!

We have some memorable dates ahead to remember:-

International Women’s Month and Women’s Day 8th March

Mothering Sunday 26th March

And it is also Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

When we look back in history we have had a lot of women who have changed things for us, two that I will reflect on on March 8th, are Rosa Parks and Emmeline Pankhurst. Although there are many more to choose from in history, let’s try to make our own history by forming a Self Organised Group.  I feel that having groups for us are a great idea, a place where women can get together to discuss matters which they feel are important to them.

As the newly elected Women’s Officer for the Surrey County Branch I am keen to organise A SOG. If you are interested please contact Janet.Callendar@surreycc.gov.uk.

Who knows perhaps we will begin our own History and as the Australian Author Jane Goodall once said:-

“What you do makes a difference and you have to decide ... What kind of difference you want to make “

 Wendy Worf, Women’s Officer, Surrey County Branch
