In celebration of International Women's Day the Birmingham Trades Union Council have organised a celebration at the Bread and Roses trade union pub in Paradise Circus (near the Central Library) in Birmingham on Saturday (tomorrow). With a Cuban theme, between 5pm-7pm there is a Women's Reception, and from 7pm till late there is a Cuban Social with music from Diweni Ketebu and speakers from Cuba Solidarity and Birmingham Action for Central America.

On the subject of International Women's day, the next time a smart-arsed male asks you when International Men's Day is, refer him to the Amnesty International website where they have an impressive range of statistics from around the world about violence against women.
