Commissioner Corbishley Recognises International Women’s Day 2021

Mon, 2021-03-08

Commissioner of Police Stephen Corbishley – Today is International Women’s Day, a key opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women across the world and the contributions they've made to social, economic, cultural and political advancements.

The theme for this year’s International Women's Day is #ChooseToChallenge, highlighting that a “challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change”.

Whilst International Women’s day is a celebration I also consider it should be a reminder to shine a light on women, young and old, that are prevented from leading a life that is safe but instead find themselves vulnerable from issues of abuse or exploitation.
