The programme is now available for York International Women’s Week 2021 (YIWW2021) which runs from the 6th-14th March focussing on the theme of Women in a time of Plague. The full programme of talks, music, exhibitions, workshops, storytelling, craftwork and other events can be downloaded from and most events are being held online.

The YIWW2021 programme this year acknowledges the profound effect of the Covid pandemic on the lives of women here and around the world. Events include Question Time, where local women politicians will debate ‘Women in a Time of Plague’ and the impact of lockdown on women. There is also farming in a time of Covid, experiences from women in frontline caring jobs, self-care techniques, craft making, a women’s brass band and lots more.

All the events are run by local women, both individuals and organisations, and pulled together by a group of volunteers. In view of current restrictions, the majority of events are online, mostly on Zoom. The organising group is offering a free ‘Beginners Guide to Zoom’ session to help people access the events.

Further details and a full programme are available at
