Old Town Bloomers #PressforProgress

Updated: Mar 9, 2018

Today is International Women's Day 2018 and the theme for this year is #PressforProgress, so we are doing our little bit, by highlighting some amazing women that have changed the world, in book form.





Rosa Parks ~ Little People, Big Dream written by Lisbeth Kaiser and Illustrated by Marta Antelo

Emmeline Pankhurst ~ Little People, Big Dream written by Lisbeth Kaiser and Illustrated by Marta Antelo

The Handmaid's Tale ~Margaret Atwood


As well as participating in this today, the garden will be having a recurring theme this year, about Women and equality. Watch out for Flora!


If you are interested in craftivism (using art,craft and creativity for activism) then we heartily recommend 'How to be a Craftivist - The art of gentle protest' by Sarah Corbett.


Protest and activism doesn't have to be loud and brutal, there are always different ways to get your point across and provoke interesting discussions, that may lead to change.
