How to celebrate International Women’s Day around the Houses

How to celebrate International Women’s Day around the Houses | Soho House

With panels, screenings, dinners and more, here are all the ways we’ll be marking it throughout March

Tuesday 28 March 2023   By Chloe Lawrance

March marks the arrival of Women’s History Month, and with it International Women’s Day, which falls on Wednesday 8 March. While we like to celebrate and elevate women 365 days a year, throughout this month we’ve created some particularly exciting events at our Houses across the globe. 

There are menu takeovers by female chefs making waves across the culinary industry; mixers that offer a space for like-minded women to connect; panels and talks from some of the most inspirational women around the world, plus so much more. We’re particularly excited for a dedicated day of programming at White City House, powered by Porsche and promising to celebrate International Women’s Day as it deserves. 

Check out this and many other highlights across the Houses below.
