Last month 30,000 people gathered in Cochabamba, Bolivia to do what world leaders had so spectacularly failed to do a few months before in Copenhagen, develop an agreement to address the looming climate catastrophe and ensure a safe climate for future generations. While the Copenhagen summit was splashed across the international media, Cochabamba has been discussed remarkably little in the mainstream press. Yet this was a significant meeting for the international climate movement and an inspiring example of the people, energy and movements that can ensure a safe climate future.

We'd like to shed some light on the history of women's struggles, discuss the issues that women still face today and build your motivation for the kick-arse activism that will take place on International Women's Day (IWD), the following Tuesday!

From academic education to lived experience, the speakers at this one-day conference aim to educate others on women's struggles and share ideas on how to fight for our rights.

The day will include (subject to change):
- the history of IWD (speech)
- women and poverty (panel)
- gender analysis (workshop)
- perceptions of gender (panel)
