To celebrate International Women's day, Cherry London invited over 100 women – reflective of the 100 years since the tradition was first celebrated – to a panel of 'wonderwomen' who discussed how best to turn conversation into action.
The panel, hosted by editor-in-chief of The Stylist, Lisa Smosarski, was in support of mothers2mothers charity. It included TV and radio host Rochelle Humes; Tanya Joseph, creator of the 'This Girl Can' campaign and vice chair of The Fawcett Society; actress Samantha Bond, and a mothers2mothers patron; Emma France, mothers2mothers' global development and strategic engagement director; Athena Stevens, spokesperson for the Women's Equality Party; Gemma Mason, head of customer experience and PR – Superdrug; and Sonoo Singh, associate editor at The Drum.
The event, presented by founder and chief executive officer of Cherry London, Tamara Gillian, talked about the importance of sharing experiences and ideas and encouraged women to push economic, social and cultural boundaries that restrict them in the working world. This seems to be making an impact, said Bond who declared that the women's movement "is no longer a wave, but a boiling sea."
