International Women’s Day, falling on the 8th of March, is a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women over the years and the British Council in the UAE will join organisations globally, and in the United Arab Emirates, to promote and create awareness of women’s issues.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, the British Council will be organising free public screenings of the film Pink Saris, by UK director Kim Longinotto, in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah.
“The British Council is passionately dedicated to raising awareness of social issues and how those could impact society at large. The film screenings of Pink Saris aim to do just that, by recognising the need to share experiences and approaches in order to tackle the continuing inequalities and discrimination faced by marginalised groups in societies worldwide,” said Michel Bechara, Director of Projects, British Council UAE.
