International Women’s Day
Today the Queen Mary’s community is celebrating International Women’s Day – a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women’s equality.
The Academic Scholars have attended a fascinating and empowering meeting with Astrophysicist, Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnell DBE FRS FRSE FRAS FInstP who discovered the first radio pulsars in 1967.
In Prayers, Queen Mary’s Head, Mrs Cameron, asked all pupils to:
Imagine a gender equal world
A world free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination
A world that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive
A world where difference is valued and celebrated
A world for each and everyone of us.
International Women’s Day has occurred for well over a century, with the first gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people. Today, International Women’s Day belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.Back to news
