Talk on the 21st March

The talk on the 21st of March went exceptionally well. Again it was interesting when I shared my experience of being a female and growing up with negative comments in the community surrounding the birth of girls – how many others related to this issue and share their stories.

It was also good to talk about inspiring women from other cultures too as for me people are people, regardless as to where they are from and they may have something to offer. So in my presentation I included women that in fact have inspired me over the years:

  • Angela Davis
  • The Suffragettes
  • Boudicca
  • The Singh Twins
  • Shirin Neshat
  • Gulabi Gang
