A Woman Among Many: Women Aloud NI

Organiser, MC, performer – it seemed a lot to do, especially in the Aloud Dianne closeweeks leading up to Women Aloud Fermanagh when I worked feverishly to pull it all together. I had to find and encourage women writers in Fermanagh to share their writing, supply information about each participant to the main Women Aloud NI website so readers could learn about them, invite individuals and organisations (by letter and on social media) to join us on 8th March and then make sure it all happened on the night. Not much to ask.

Aloud DianneUntil the evening arrived, it seemed that I was trudging along at a mammoth task on my own. But there were plenty of willing, helpful hands and voices on the night. As I kept an eye, from my chair in the front row, that everything was on track during the evening, I was blown away by some of the women’s performances and gratified by the audience’s response. By then everyone was pulling together and it was a fantastic celebration of International Women’s Day.
