Women of Camphill

On 8th March, it was International Women's Day. It is a focal point in the movement of Women's rights.
After the Socialist Party of America organised a Women's Day on February 28, 1909 in New York the 1910 International Socialist Women's Conference  suggested a Women's Day be held annually. After women gained suffrage in Soviet Russia in 1917, March 8 became a national holiday there. The day was then predominantly celebrated by the socialist movement and communist countries until it was adopted in 1975 by the United Nations.
Many of the women in Camphill Milton Keynes were interviewed for our newsletter and also for the Camphill Milton Keynes Facebook page about their role in the community.
