International Women’s Day falls on the 8th March every year, and has been observed in some form for over 100 years.
I was invited to speak at Downside School to mark International Women’s Day. I was in the distinguished company of author Maria Farrer and academic Dr Bruna Gushurst-Moore – who both gave really thought-provoking talks.
Yet again, the questions at the end of my talk were what really made it for me, and I was pleased to have a real range of thoughtful questions.
I also ran into an old friend from university who is now working at Downside, which was a lovely surprise in a very busy day!
