International Womens Day

Activities for Seniors | By Debbie Davison
8th of March International Women's Day celebrates the achievements of women around the world every year for their social, economic, cultural, and political achievements.

International Women's Day

To celebrate this day in aged care you could have a special morning or afternoon tea invite all residents and if possible have a guest speaker from the community who can tell a story about their lives and their achievements may be in a male-dominated career. It could be a Doctor, Lawyer, truck driver, mechanic, or business owner.
Encourage some of the female residents to share stories from their past e.g.: Women who served in the forces ( I was lucky enough to have two ladies who were pilots in the Air Force ). . .
Ladies could talk about the Land Army this was established in world war two when most of the men had to leave and the women had to take over farming duties, truck driving, and factory work until the men came home. It's very interesting some of the stories women can tell from those times and experiences.
Also you could make a list of some very famous and well-known women to talk about e.g.: Princess Diana the charity work she was involved in, Margaret Thatcher female prime minister of the UK, Florence Nightingale founder of modern nursing, Kamala Harris the new Vice President USA, Oprah Winfrey talk show host, Amelia Earhart a Pilot the list is endless. Talk about equal rights for women and equal pay. Have a wonderful day celebrating being a wonderful woman. .
