For International Women’s Day, as part of our Humanities topic on Brazil, Year 6 learnt about Mulheres Unidas (Women United movement) and mulher poderosa (strong, determined women) included them in postcards written from the Rio Carnival. Here’s some examples from Mimi, Serena and Riya.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women’s achievements or rally for women’s equality.
Marked annually on March 8th, International Women’s Day (IWD) is one of the most important days of the year to:
- celebrate women’s achievements
- raise awareness about women’s equality
- lobby for accelerated gender parity
- fundraise for female-focused charities
