Blog: Celebrating International Women's Day
How we, at the Jo Cox Foundation, are celebrating International Women's Day in honour of Jo.
Jo and parliamentary friends at the 2016 Macmillan House of Commons vs House of Lords Tug of War, her last public engagement.
One of Jo’s most powerful qualities was her ability to lead collaboratively, and nowhere was this truer than in her feminism.
Jo was that rare person who could both encourage and empower, a woman whose activism was infectious and whose firmly-held values inspired you, even if you’d never met her, to act.
And so many women have been inspired by Jo’s example.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we are sharing stories of women and initiatives who are taking action to drive positive change in Jo’s memory. Read their stories here.
