A night of spoken word and music defined an Orchestrated Act of Kindness this International Women’s Day.

Orchestrated Acts of Kindness is a London based group who organise acts of kindness, both big and small, with the intention of making people happy.

For International Women’s Day OAKS chose Housing for Women to be their beneficiary. Housing for Women is an 80 year old London based charity that supports women who have experienced domestic abuse, and other challenges including trafficking and incarceration.

The Ritzy hosted this event that was aptly named ‘Women of Voice’. Entertainment was provided through an all-female line-up of musicians and spoken work.

One of the acts featured was Poetic Pilgrimage; a female Hip Hop and Spoken Word duo whose work covers a range of issues including identity, global politics and women’s issues.poem

Orchestrated Acts of Kindness raised £247 for Housing for Women at the event and a poem commenting on what it means to be a girls was created by all of the women featured at the event.
