A day of action to acknowledge and pray for women who are suffering in Watford and all around the world will be held in the town at 11.30am on Saturday, March 1.

The International Women's Day of Prayer will be held at Watford Town Seventh Day Adventist Church, in Brixton Road, Watford, and there is an open invitation for all members of the community to attend.

The church’s Women’s Ministries leader Andre Best said : "The image of the 21st century woman is confident, prosperous, glowing with health and beauty.

"But the reality is for many of the 3.3 billion female occupants of this world, continue to suffer violence, repression, isolation, enforced ignorance and discrimination.

"In spite of real progress in women's rights around the globe - better laws, political participation, education and income - the problems that have dogged women for centuries remain.

"We as a community church want to raise awareness of the difficulties that women of today are faced with and that’s why we are calling for all women and men from all ethnicities, cultures, race, religion, as this issue effects all, to come along and support this day."
