Today is the Day of the Girl Child. In so many countries, being born a girl is to be born as the Second Sex. Today we celebrate the empowering of girls worldwide as we support girls to achieve their full potential in education, creative freedom, and ambition.
Thank you to all who came to Girls Talk on Saturday 8th, a workshop funded by the Mayor of London: London Unseen: Heritage Tours and Trails London City Hall, where girls were invited to share their thoughts on the opportunities they have as girls/young women, barriers in their way and how they can tackle these. They discussed trailblazers, past and present, who should be recognised and celebrated. We hope plaques, statues and more community activities will raise awareness of inspiring women.
