Happy International Women’s Day

It’s time to celebrate the brilliant achievements of women all over the world, and there are many ways to do just that, whether it’s showing support online, spending time with the incredible females in your life, or supporting businesses owned and run by women.

Several of the businesses at The Colombo are owned and operated by women, and it’s also the perfect spot for a catch up, professional meeting, or getting a little more girl power in your life. You may choose to check out some of the books at The Colombo Bookstore penned by women, and consider starting or joining a women’s book club. Have a look at the films currently showing at Academy Gold Cinemas and organise an outing to watch a female-led story, or the work of a female director. Explore the great retail businesses and strike up a conversation with staff about their products – you might learn something new about your favourite stores, and continuing the conversation is always an important part of the cause.
