International Women's Day 8 March

Last Sunday we celebrated the 30th anniversary of Debbie's ordination. One of her roles is as Dean of Women's Ministry and we are thankful that now, men and women priests can work side by side in many places, if not all.
It's a good time to think about today's message for International Women's Day from the Secretary-General of the United Nations.
"On International Women’s Day, we celebrate women and girls around the world, and we applaud all they have achieved in the fight for equality.
Women and girls have made great gains – demolishing barriers, dismantling stereotypes and driving progress towards a more just and equal world."
