International Women’s Day
Thank you to all of you who sent your child in, wearing something purple, to celebrate International Women’s Day, yesterday. It is a really important event for a number of reasons:The theme this year is “Gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow,” and call for climate action for women, by women. Some of the latest data helps us to understand the vital link between gender, social equity, and climate change. Women and girls experience some of the greatest impacts of the climate crisis as it amplifies existing gender inequalities and puts women’s lives and livelihoods at risk. Across the world, women depend more on, yet have less access to, natural resources, and often bear a disproportionate responsibility for securing food, water, and fuel. We are, therefore, proud to support United Nations observance of International Women’s Day 2022 and thank you for your support with this!
