International Womens Day - AFO Womens Meeting

INTERNATIONAL WOMENS DAY is today 8th March 2021.
One could say “why do we still need a special day to celebrate the work and lives of women?”
The answer is, sadly, quite simple - the male of the species still dominate the world, the country, the county, the town and often the family.
The festival world from its big boom in the 1960’s and 70’s was all male directors. Now it IS changing and there are more strong women in director and leading positions in our festival and events world, much to the benefit of the industry.
AFO has lots of good festivals organised and run by women and we are very proud of that. There is more to do of course and we join with these women in encouraging more female involvement in the management of festivals and events.
At 6.30pm today AFO women will be holding a members meeting online to celebrate, to discuss, to learn and teach each other. They will share their experiences and record the meeting as a further example of good practice amongst the women of our association.
