International Women’s Day is here to remind us that women-men equality is still far away. Between this issue and women’s conditions in the world, the struggle isn’t to end now.
For this famous International Women’s Day, held on Frieday March 8, 2019, events are held everywhere in Paris. From activists’ demonstrations in the streets to debates, plays and introduction to self-defense sports, we must say that International Women’s Day has become a grab bag for many other things.
On the menu for International Women’s Day 2019 in Paris:

International Women's Day 2019: free introduction to Aikido in Paris and Ile de France
For the International Women's Day 2019, Aikido clubs in Paris offer free introductions from March 9 to 17, during open houses in order to make you discover this benevolent sport.
Is this day – aiming at being activist before anything else to change minds and move Women’s right forward – becoming something “commercial” and even “festive”?
The debate is launched, but, at Sortiraparis, even if we fight for Women’s right and sex equality, we don’t spit at the rose given by our boss or the show and exhibitions showing us how amazing, we, women, we are!
Stay tuned to discover other events.
