International Women’s Day

Welcome to the RCN’s International

Women’s Day presentation.

This year’s theme focuses on ending

violence against women.

The following slides highlight some of the

work being done by the Royal College of

Nursing in this area.


Our pledge

The RCN will continue to raise awareness of International Women’s Day as an integral part of our long tradition of work in implementing equality of opportunity, celebrating diversity and promoting human rights.

“All workers have a right to work safely and free from violence.

The RCN is concerned that a predominantly female nursing workforce is exposed to high levels of physical and verbal abuse at work and calls on employers, regulators and the Government to do more to protect vulnerable workers from violence.”

Kim Sunley,

RCN Senior Employment Relations Advisor
