Monaco to mark International Women’s Rights Day with innovative ‘PowHer’ event

Women in business, women in sport, women in the arts… Coinciding with International Women’s Rights Day in March, the Principality is to celebrate the exceptional achievements and ambitions of its female population with a very special new event: PowHer. Here are all the details. 

Monaco is joining in with International Women’s Rights Day on 8th March with an inspiring and innovative female-focused event at the Espace Léo Ferré from 9am to 8pm.  

Cleverly dubbed PowHer, Monaco’s Women’s Rights Committee is organising a full-day occasion that will feature talks, conferences, creative sessions and workshops on a variety of pertinent topics, such as education, health, sport and employment. 

“We strive to show how Monaco stands united for women’s rights,” says Céline Cottalorda, Monaco’s Chief Women’s Rights Officer, who is pictured above. “PowHer promotes the current and upcoming initiatives of our partners in the Principality. It will be a wonderful celebration that is open to all.”   

Some of the highlights of the day will be a theatre performance, a poetry reading from school pupils in Monaco, a talk on women in the workplace that will be led by representatives from the Association of Women Business Leaders of Monaco, a mini-conference on women in sport and a roundtable discussion on how the Principality is combatting violence against women.  

A wishing tree will also be installed on-site, giving women and friends of the event a chance to share their own messages of support as well as their personal thoughts.  

The day, which is entirely free to join and is open to all, will end with a party and concert. Tickets can be reserved now for this aspect of the event.
