Odissi dancer Sitara Thobani's address at the British Parliament celebrations for IWD, reflecting on the cultural heritage that empowers her as a modern woman
As we commemorate International Women’s Day, I would like to reflect on what it is that we are to celebrate. IWD reminds us of the need to stand in solidarity as women with women around the world, to question the power and injustices that affect the lives of so many women in so many ways, however different these may be. This solidarity does not aim to do away with difference, but rather seeks for us to come together through this difference. All too often, this difference is named culture.
