women's day walk in Waterford 2012

Women’s Day is used internationally to celebrate women’s achievements. In Waterford, however, there is little visible evidence of women’s achievements and their input into our lives. For example, of the 30 blue plaques listed by the Waterford Civic Trust, only two relate to women. Waterford Women’s Centre decided to mark International Women’s Day on 8th March 2012 by beginning a conversation about ordinary women’s contribution to the development of the City and its identity.
