International Women’s Day

Wednesday, 8 March 2023

Today, people all over the world celebrate International Women’s Day!

The day has been celebrated since 1911, when it was first introduced in Germany, Denmark, Austria, Switzerland, and the USA to demand equal rights and the right to vote for women. Years later, International Women’s Day was established on March 8th. Since then, International Women’s Day has come to represent the importance of women’s independence, strength, and potential for positive change.

To commemorate this day, we asked our students and staff the question:

“Which women inspired you most in life and why?”

The answers are a testament to all the women we are celebrating today in the world – enjoy watching this heartwarming video!
