Charities in Drumchapel have teamed up to march for International Women's Day to mark local women in the area.

Family support charity 3D Drumchapel and their 'Women of Wonder' group have joined forces with Thriving Places, the North West Health Improvement Team and the Asian Forum to celebrate local women.

This year's theme is Embrace Equity, which encourages people to help build a gender-equal world, where difference is valued and celebrated.

Every March events take place across the world to highlight the achievements of women - whether they be social, economic, cultural or political - and mark the advances of women in progressing equity and equality.

At 9.15am on Wednesday, March 8, women marched from Drumchapel St Andrew's Church to show their support and celebrate.

There were also a number of stalls including food, nails and henna art. A free prize draw, women's health information along with a guest speaker also attended.

Meanwhile, in Clydebank, Provost Douglas McAllister was joined by elected councillors, local residents and school pupils in a flag-raising ceremony to mark the occasion.

Speaking at the ceremony at Solidarity Plaza, Provost McAllister said: “Equity recognises that not everyone starts from the same place, taking into account the diverse lived experiences of individuals and communities.

“Equality is the goal, but equity is the means to get there.

“As a council, we are committed to challenging gender stereotypes, calling out discrimination and removing barriers built on old assumptions and expectations.

“A great example of this is our work to challenge occupational segregation – making sure that both girls and boys in our schools have access to the courses and training that interests and excites them without any barriers based on gender assumptions.

“We commit to breaking down these barriers and disadvantages in any and every way we can.”
