On Monday afternoon, Ms Roberts spoke in her assembly of the International Women’s Day theme, Balance for Better. This year, International Women’s Day (Friday 8th March) aims to inspire women by celebrating achievement, and to raise awareness of gender equality and the ambition for a gender-balanced world.
In her assembly, Ms Roberts highlighted the history of International Women’s Day, and spoke of current issues such as #MeToo, #TimesUp and #IStandWithCarrie before introducing the #BalanceforBetter pose. Ms Roberts encouraged the girls to discuss the issues raised during Tutorial following assembly.
Boarding Housemistresses will further support the message with a themed Supper on Friday night, with meal suggestions coming from recipes of well-known female chefs, and the Dining Room decorated in the movement’s colours.
