International Women's Day is a global opportunity to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements and successes of women and to acknowledge the actions many have taken to bring about change and action in addressing gender inequality.

This year Hestia will be joining many women and organisations world wide in the general theme #choosetochallenge. We will be engaging with women across Hestia services to provide a sphere to empower and inspire by sharing our journeys, challenges, and strengths as women.

International Women's Day also marks the launch of NO MORE WEEK 2021, the international movement to abolish domestic abuse and sexual violence. The UK SAYS NO MORE Campaign is delivered by Hestia.

Becoming self-aware empowers us to notice what nourishes us and what doesn't. This takes time and practice kindness! In this session, we will practice Kindfulness in small doses to see what works for you; we will explore ways to quiet and focus our minds, and notice thoughts of kindness, instead of expectation or judgement.
