Presbyterian and Uniting parishes are invited to support the Presbyterian Women Aotearoa Special Collection on Sunday, 10 March 2019.
International Women’s Day is on 8 March 2019 celebrates the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women across the globe. But far from singling out women, the day focuses on unity, equality and advocacy – especially in a world where the differences and injustices between women and men are as great as ever.
Presbyterian Women Aotearoa reminds us that the General Assembly 2016 recommended:
That a PWANZ Special Collection be taken on the Sunday nearest to International Women’s Day each March to support the ongoing advocacy role of Presbyterian Women Aotearoa New Zealand locally, regionally, internationally, as well as at the United Nations.
