WOMEN from Greenwich, Lewisham and Southwark will be celebrated in a Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust award ceremony.

The charity, set up in memory of the murdered teenager, will mark International Women’s Day with the awards on March 8 at Goldsmiths University.

It will see a handful of ladies, who were nominated by the community, receive recommendations.

A panel of speakers at the event will include Stephen's mother Doreen, human rights campaigner Shami Chakrabarti and Lewisham Deptford MP Joan Ruddock.

Mrs Lawrence said: "As we mark the 20th anniversary of Stephen’s death we want to take the opportunity recognize inspirational women in the local community."

The rest of the week will also feature free workshops, activities and events for local women at the Stephen Lawrence Centre in Deptford.
