Today is International Women’s Day and here at Invisible (Edinburgh) we are doing something a little bit special to celebrate.
To mark the occasion our very own Biffy will be leading a tour that will showcase the many amazing stories of powerful women hailing from Edinburgh, including JK Rowling, Maggie Dickson and Biffy herself.
The hour long tour will take place on Saturday 11th March from 2-3pm and will pass through various places of interest in the city that have been marked by illustrious women and played an important part in Biffy’s life, too.
It’s an important part of the Invisible Edinburgh mission to show support and solidarity to other local community groups, so we’ve decided that the proceeds from Biffy's tour will be used to support a mother and toddler group organised by the Muslim Women's Association of Edinburgh.
The association are in desperate need of items to help to group to continue their important work, and in the spirit of the day we are delighted to help.
Zakia Mouloui, Founder of Invisible (Edinburgh) said; “It was important for Biffy and I to show solidarity towards other women, especially on this day. By buying a few simple items for the toddlers group, we can show that support to other women and their daughters.
“We want to highlight how strong and powerful women are, and the tour will do just that!”
