International Women’s Day
On Thursday our girls came together in assembly to celebrate International Women’s Day. In this centenary year of women obtaining the right to vote and in light of recent Hollywood scandals and the World Economic Forum predicting it will take 217 years to close the gender pay gap, it seems that recognition of this day is more important than ever. The theme of this year’s day is to ‘Press for Progress’. Orlaith, Chloe, Lucy, Olivia and Grace in Year 12 shared with us how they intend to do this, ranging from celebrating the achievements of women to maintaining a gender parity mind-set. Most importantly, our girls took away the key message that they should never allow their gender to hold them back.
