UN Women International Women's Day Breakfast

In order to celebrate International Women’s Day, this year, the Year 12 Leadership team attended the UN Women International Women’s Day Breakfast on Wednesday the 4th of March. We had the opportunity to hear from some fabulous speakers and panelists that are working with the UN on their 2020 campaign: “Generation Equality”; demanding equal pay; an end to sexual harassment and violence against women and girls; and, their equal participation in politics and in decision-making in all areas of life. This year was the first year that Applecross’ Head Boy and Deputy Head Boy came along, as we feel it is important for all people to be included in the conversation around female empowerment.

We were presented with some confronting statistics on the day: over 500 million girls and women worldwide are illiterate, and women and girls constitute an astonishing two-thirds of the world’s illiterate population. It reinforced the gratitude we all feel to be educated with such great support in a privileged area like ours. The breakfast included speeches from people working with the UN Women’s Second Chance education program, including the CEOs of Sisterworks and Real Futures; companies that are both looking to increase women’s involvement in the workforce through education.

It was an incredible, eye-opening experience for us all, and we’re looking forward to seeing how we can work to carry out these important messages in our school environment.
