International Women’s Day

During week 10 we paid attention to all of the great Women of the past and present.

The international Women’s Day was first celebrated on the 19th of March 1911 but was moved to the 8th of March 1913. The day aimed to help nations worldwide eliminate discrimination against women. It also focused on helping women gain full and equal participation in global development. We need to address these issues due to that inequality and discrimination still exist.

We decided to pay tribute to all those strong women out there, present and past who have lead the way, showing the world that even if they have been ridiculed and/or questioned they have stood up for them selves and chased their dreams and accomplished their set goals.

With exhibitions on different floors as well as in the library we showed portraits of these wondrous women with short biographies on who they are or were. Fictive women characters as well as real as one can get. Role models for us all, not only women.

In the library we also had a small exhibition about "Strong Female Characters in Literature" open for the students and during lessons we brought it up in all different kind of ways.
