Celebrate the 100th Anniversary


International Women’s Day


March 8, 2011


A Celebration of Women

has found some fun events for the Women of our World:

Take Action and have FUN!




We invite you to join tens of thousands of people coming together on bridges all over the world — from the Millennium Bridge in London, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the Grand Barriere Bridge joining Rwanda and Congo — to show your support for women’s causes and celebrate women’s achievements.

We also invite you to donate to one of the incredible organizations that work to improve the lives of women worldwide. Support a cause you care about at the bottom of the page.  

The Women of our World say:

‘See you on the bridge’!


Millennium Bridge London

Join us on 8th March at 10am at Borough Market for coffee and banner making.

The London march, led by Annie Lennox, will leave Borough Market at 11am, walking along the south side of the river to Millennium Bridge, crossing the Thames to the north side then continuing west along the river walk way past Victoria Embankment Gardens, then crossing back along Hungerford Bridge to the south side of the river and finishing at the Royal Festival Hall for speeches and more.

Brooklyn Bridge New York

Join us on March 8 from 10:30am to 1pm. If you’re short on time, you can choose to register ONLY for the festival in City Hall Park (noon to 1pm).

  • 10:30am: Check-in at Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn (High Street stop on A,C Subway is the closest). From there we’ll walk together, across the Brooklyn Bridge, to City Hall Park in Manhattan.
  • 12:00pm: Festival begins at City Hall Park, Manhattan. (If you’re skipping the Bridge Walk and just joining us for the Festival, check in at City Hall Park at 11:45.)

Golden Gate San Francisco

Join us on March 8 at 10am at Crissy Fields in Presidio park for banner making and preparations.

The San Francisco march will leave at 11 to get to the northern bank where you will get your “100th anniversary Passport” to certify that you crossed the Golden Gate Bridge for Women on March 8, 2011. We will have complimentary shuttles to bring you back to the San Francisco bank if you want to stay to the celebration.
