International Women’s Day
Let’s All Choose To Challenge
8th March 2021
This assembly is suitable for students in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5.
According to the United Nations, the origins of International Women’s Day can be traced way back to 1857, when garment workers in New York City staged a protest against inhumane working conditions and low wages. This led to the creation of the first Women’s Labour Union.
In recent decades there has been positive change in attitudes around gender equality however change has been uneven and incremental. At the current rate of change, the global gender gap will not close for another 100 years. There is still a long way to go.
It’s not all doom and gloom however. Today we are surrounded by inspirational women breaking down barriers and giving women the impetus and courage to move forward and become who they want to be.
This age-appropriate, thought-provoking assembly looks at the history around International Women’s Day, touches on some of the current prevalent issues and attempts to inspire students with quotes from a range of influential women past and present.
This presentation can be used as an assembly or as part of an International Women’s Day or Women’s History Month project.
Comprising of a 40-slide power-point presentation, detailed script, music accompaniments and a relevant prayer, this informative pack will save you many hours of preparation time, simply download and go!
