#Throwback to last year's #processions2018 celebrating 100 years of women's suffrage. A hot, sunny day of joy (apart from a couple of young men who decided they were offended at the sight of 1000s of women quietly amd cheerfully walking along and tried to pick a fight). We're singing Katy Perry's Roar at choir this term too. Must remember to keep roaring!
The main theme of International Women’s Day 2019 is #balanceforbetter. It reminded me of my children’s responses to finding out more about attitudes towards women when we made our banners for the Processions March last June to mark 100 years since (some) women got the vote in the UK. They struggled to imagine that we didn’t have the same voting rights as men. It opened up a chat about how although things are way better now, we’re still paid less and not represented proportionally in politics. Isn’t it crazy that we’re still aiming for balance? My hope is that my children’s generation continue to think it’s crazy and weird and that those glass ceilings get smashed and equality reigns. #thisgirlcan#iwd2019#iwd#internationalwomensday#balanceforbetter #processions2018 #banner#smashglassceilings#raisingboys#challengethestatusquo#stronggirlsclub#valeofglamorgan#nextgeneration
