As part of our activities around International Women’s Day, we at DSW have decided to celebrate the role of women working in development for the whole week on the DSW blog.


Each, we are giving space to our colleagues working for DSW to give their view on why International Women’s Day is important, their view on the role of women in development policy, and how they will be celebrating International Women’s Day this year!

So, stay tuned for our first instalment this afternoon, and get in touch and tell us what International Women’s Day means to you. You can follow our updates here, via Twitter or the #IWD2014 hashtag!
