Local Care Home Celebrates International Women’s Day

Residents at Chorleywood Beaumont in Chorleywood marked International Women’s Day (IWD) on March 8th by spending the day celebrating the achievements of wonderful trail-blazing women throughout history.

IWD takes place on March 8 every year to celebrate women’s rights and inspire people to fight for gender equality. A United Nations-sanctioned global holiday, IWD celebrates women’s contributions to society, raises awareness about the fight for gender parity and inspires support for organisations that support women globally.

Residents took part in discussions about the role of the many different women who have shaped history from Boudicca to Florence Nightingale and Marie Curie and of The Queen. They talked about the important women in their own lives and celebrated the achievements of their fellow residents.

To continue the celebrations Chorleywood Beaumont hosted a concert with Italian Tenor Yuri Sabatini who put on an amazing show and all the women were presented with roses.

Ramona Stanciu, General Manager at Chorleywood Beaumont said:
“We’ve all had a really interesting day thinking about the very many brilliant women who have had such an impact on our lives, whether that was an historic figure or people in our own family.
