A charity dedicated to improving and protecting the rights of women in the community celebrated International Women’s Day last week.

About 60 members and supporters of charity Awaaz gathered together to celebrate at Loxford Children’s Centre, in Ilford Lane.

The event on Wednesday was an opportunity to learn more about women’s roles in different faiths, said chairwoman Bushra Tahir.

She said: “We invited three male leaders from the Muslim, Jewish and Christian faith.

“They explained the role of women in their religion and it was very interesting to learn more as our group includes women across all faiths.

“A brilliant day was had by all, including the Redbridge Mayor who attended.

“It was a very positive event and we will definitely be repeating it again next year.”
