International Women's Day | Seren
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, NE Youth will be Awarding six amazing women and we want to hear from you who you think should win!
Voting is open now – the closing date is 25th February 2021 . This is about celebrating and recognising the achievements and talents of women over the previous year. We would like you to nominate the women who have gone above and beyond to change the lives of other women and girls in their communities. 2020 tested all of us but we firmly believe that it was us women that held the majority of it together – and that’s most defiantly something to shout about!
