Women in Democracy is this year’s theme of Parliament Week. It is celebrating women’s representation and role in society. We know from historical evidences that the voice of women was raised when injustice and intolerance prevailed and their actions changed our culture and the general public views on democracy.

We are all aware of women’s distress in many parts of the world and we sympathize with those who courageously fight for their rights. Democracy in action is to raise awareness and to make women’s voice to be heard loudly. Our British society promotes diversity, tolerance and equality and we include women in all fields of active life, but we also inspire women from other communities, as well as from other parts of the world, to become more proactive.

We use music, as the world’s universal language of communication and peace, to create an event dedicated to all women. All our performers are women musicians from different cultural background who will perform traditional, classical or contemporary music and dance in order to enhance our society’s cultural diversity.

This will be a celebration of women’s role in life, their struggle to take an active part in community and political life and to earn their independence as breadwinners and heads of households. It was a long struggle but now, in the 21st century, we celebrate women’s contribution to our society.

All the performers will give their time free and the organisers volunteer in celebration of Parliament Week.
