On Monday year 8 had a session in the hall with the fantastic youth workers from Brook. The session considered and explored Gender Identity allowing students to engage in productive discussion about the issue and learn different terminologies and the importance of respecting others. The session also explored sexuality and the dangers of homophobia and transphobia and how this can make a person feel. The session was fantastic and year 8 seemed to gain a great deal from the activities and discussions.
8th March is International Women’s Day. A day to celebrate the work of women and the contribution women make to society as a whole. There are so many women throughout history and in today’s modern world who stand up for our gender and raise awareness of inequalities. There are many women who also work quietly behind the scenes raising up the next generation of women. Today is a day to celebrate all of these women, young and old.
Here are some photographs of some of the women featured on my display, pop along to room 13 to find out more about them…
I have put together a display in Rm 13 of women I have researched and find inspiring. Why not bring in a photograph and a short explanation and add your inspiring woman to my display.
Let’s celebrate women all over the world today.
