Celebrating International Women's Day

OE women speak in a motivational video promoting gender equality

To celebrate International Women's Day on Wednesday 8 March, Head of School Tess Garrett invited a number of OE women to record on video their thoughts on what it means to be a woman in today's world. It's a project inspired by the gender BE YOU group at the College, a group of pupils who come together to promote gender equality within the school.

Tess said: 'We would like this video to be female focused and the aim is to empower girls through the school, especially on International Women’s Day, proving to them that anything can be achieved if they put their mind to it and are a kind person.'

Those who took part were asked to consider:

  • What’s one moment in your life where you have felt proud to be a woman?
  • Has your career taught you something that you feel is worth sharing?
  • Who is one woman that has inspired you throughout your life?
  • What are your hopes for the women of the future?

The video was shown in an assembly to the school last week, and we are pleased to promote it to all members of the Eastbournian Society. You can watch the video here.

We are grateful to the OEs who took part: Sasha Bates (Nugent 1984-86), Patti Clark (Nugent 1983-85), Jax Comyn (Nugent 1979-81), Di Moss (Nugent 1970-72), Georgie Daniels (School 2014-16), Emily Warburton-Adams (School 2007-10), Lulu Brown (Nugent 1980-82), Helen Binge (Nugent 1973-75) and Jenny Kirtley (Nugent 1989-91).
