Women know what they’re doing

On March 7th from 11.00 to 18.00 there will be a special event in Blue City featuring women writers, bloggers, journalists, trainers, dieticians and psychologists. During panel discussions these women are going to discuss topics concerning where women can source the strength to face up to life’s challenges, what role in their lives is played by passion and personal development as well as how to look after oneself and  where and how to find pleasure.
