Bread & Roses from our Women’s Programme

Bread & Roses is a political slogan that was used in a speech in 1912 by feminist and promnent labour union leader Rose Schneidermann. She used the phrase, “The worker must have bread, but she must have roses, too.” It carries the idea that we need our basic necessities (bread) to stay alive and we need to be a part of awe and joy (roses) to really live. In celebration of this idea during the time around International Women’s Day, we hope you can participate in and enjoy some of the events happening for women around the County. Go HERE for details.
