Retailers operating along a popular street dominated by women shop owners are celebrating International Women’s Day.
Women owners of LoveOne, Maud’s Attic, Purity Beauty, Hannah Huntly, Applaud Coffee, Crafty Baba, Cake & Catwalk and The Studio, all runs shops at The Saints, St Peter’s Street in Ipswich town centre.
The street has become a magnet for female retailers, with more than half independent shops in The Saints founded and run by women.
The campaign theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, which takes place on Friday, March 8, is ‘better the balance, better the world’.
It is calling for a gender-balanced world, where everyone has a part to play, and calls on people to notice its absence and celebrate its presence.
