Members of the West Wolds Branch Labour Party recently braved the cold weather to mark International Women’s Day with a stall in Pocklington Market Place.

The day was a global event celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Members talked to passers-by and handed out literature, including copies of Maya Angelou’s poem ‘Phenomenal Woman’, to raise awareness of contemporary gender issues.
