To coincide with International Women’s Day 2020, Thrive Teesside have released a special edition of our women’s book #ThrivingWomen.

The theme for this years International Women’s Day is “#EachforEqual”.

From the official website,

“An equal world is an enabled world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.

We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.

Collectively, each one of us can help create a gender equal world.

Let’s all be #EachforEqual.”

Thriving Women was created and produced by a collective of women who live and work in Teesside.

The poems and articles in this book shows how we, as Teesside women are highly skilled, passionate and determined and will not stay silent. We are the voice of our communities and we are here to be listened to, no matter what we face we will rise up, and we rise up by helping others.

We wanted to relaunch our book to coincide with International Women’s Day, with new poems, pictures and more! We hope you enjoy:
