International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
International Women's Day has been observed since the early 1900's, during a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.
International Women's Day continues to be a powerful platform, globally unifying tenacity and driving action for gender parity, while celebrating the social, cultural, economic and political achievements of women.
Mrs Pickering, Head of Girls and Ellie Wheat, Head Girl, had a lovely morning listening to inspiring speakers at the International Women's Day event at the Guildhall. The event highlighted the importance of an equal gender balance throughout the workplace and how we all can inspire girls and women to reach their full potential.
