WOMEN from different backgrounds came together in Huddersfield in an event to celebrate the achievements of women globally.
They held a half-hour silence outside Huddersfield Library before setting off on a ‘peace walk’ to the Hindu temple on Zetland Street to share food and talk about their own personal experiences.
It was part of International Women’s Day which was started 100 years ago as a political event to recognise the struggle for gender equality.
Kiran Bali, a peace campaigner, community worker and general secretary of the Hindu temple in Huddersfield, said: “There’s no room for complacency because, although there have been considerable achievements, women continue to experience inequity.”
About 25 women took part.
