International Women’s Day 2016

IWD

Happy ‪International Women’s Day‬!

I thought I’d do a little portrait in purple to celebrate (purple being the colour of the International Women’s Day logo, also associated with the suffragettes etc.) It looks a bit more vibrant than this in real life!

The focus of the day this year is making global gender equality a reality. It makes sense to me that unless every child has access to a proper education, this goal can’t be met. To deny girls an education isn’t just a personal tragedy for the children who miss out (and some of the stories you read are heartbreaking – these girls have DREAMS), it’s a guaranteed setback for the societies they grow up in. It’s an own goal, basically.
