International Women’s Day – March 8th 2018 – #PressforProgress – Coffee Morning Next Thursday.

Sally Cronin invites us to participate in an important conversation on Thursday March 8th at her blog (and anywhere else!), which is International Women’s Day. This post is one I’m reblogging as it is a great read, bringing up many relevant issues. Please take time to read it.
