International Women’s Day 2021 Celebrates Waterford women in history
In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021, the Women’s Centre celebrates Waterford Women in history. We are delighted to have Dr. Christina Henri, Roses from the Heart Project, launch another memorial plaque, our fifth, to women and especially pleased to see it placed on the Women’s Centre building at 74-76 Manor Street, Waterford. This plaque commemorates 300 forgotten women transported from Waterford to Van Diemen’s Land for petty crimes amid a backdrop of abject poverty and the famine in Ireland. Many left families here and never returned. The Bonnet Project exhibition is in the windows of the Women’s Centre and celebrates and names some of these individual women through this beautiful community art project and individual bonnets hand made by our groups. Thanks to WWETB and Creative Ireland for supporting this project.
Due to a family bereavement of one of our close contributors, Waterford Women’s Centre is postponing our International Women’s Day Festival due to take place next Monday 8th March until the 13th April
