International Women’s Day: Paint Jam

On 5 March, artists from across the UK gathered on the boardwalk next to the River Taff and the Principality Stadium for the ‘Back to Nature’ Paint Jam. The jam was to raise awareness of the Women’s Equality Network, a network of over 700 organisations and individuals committed to making Wales a safer and fairer place for women and girls.

International Women’s Day is an important opportunity to celebrate the contribution and achievements of women across the world. It’s also a chance to raise awareness about the rights of women and girls. In Wales, it’s an opportunity to celebrate the work done to uphold women’s rights and to consider the challenges still facing women.

Photographer Shannon Jackson went along to take some photos of the event for us:
