Since years women fight for their rights and equality, and the fight hasn’t ended yet. Even if we have to remember it every day, the 8th of Mach is the chosen day as the International Women’s Day.
During the whole month, there are lots of cultural events, for women’s day in Barcelona, connected to the 8th of March. Here is our Sharify’s selection!
1. Women’s day in MNAC
For Women’s Day in Barcelona, the Museu Nacional de Catalunya has prepared a series of activities. In this way, it shows its involvement with society, and promotes the fight against discrimination against women. For this reason, on March 7, the museum will open its doors for free from 10am to 3pm.
In addition, we will be able to enjoy the exhibition “L’empremta de les dones artistes a la Barcelona de postguerra”. It is a sample of small catalogs, which give visibility to the artistic activity of women in the city during the post-war period.
