International Women's Day
So often, the role of women in society is unrecognised or watered down - and the 8th March is a day to change this around. We visited the Waterloo Action Centre to find out more about the stories of the leading women of Waterloo's community, and we are immensely proud to share their stories with you.
Throughout her life, Jenny has also helped break down barriers between faiths during the Troubles in Old Peoples' Homes on request of the Northern Irish government, as well as helped the Docklands area of London's communities have their voice heard - although, she recalls, wasn't always successful - during the redevelopment which involved creating the global financial centre it is today.

Today, the Centre is independently funded, as they had their funding cut, through hiring their halls - however, the Council raising their rent may make the Waterloo Action Centre a community of the past.
We are a female-owned brand designed femininity-inspired sustainable bags for everyday wear. With every purchase this week, we will donate 5% of our sales to empowering the women and the community of the Waterloo Action Centre.
