Break the bias through stories
|International Women's Day|
March is the month for Ms Rose Blossom, it's the month of International Women's Day/Women's History Month and when this blog began, nine years ago. I've had remarkable opportunities to empower girls and young women ( boys also included) at primary, secondary schools and library centres as a storyteller and author, encouraging them to aspire higher and believe they can fly from World Book Day/Week to the month end. Sharing my own journey and other stories of fly girls/ pioneer women it was delightful to see how much of a positive impact a good story can make. I was also fortunate to be recruited on to the BBC 100 years of storytelling tour around the UK, with the aim to encourage the next generation into storytelling careers.
This blog was first published in 2013, and it's been a remarkable journey sharing stories in this virtual space and collaborating with individuals and organisations in public spaces with the purpose to encourage girls/women and young people of any gender to follow their dreams, fulfill their potential as well as motivating them to invest their energy in being active looking after their health and wellbeing. It is a collective effort to a world of equality and we continue telling stories that others have started and paved the way for us to continue. The gender equality story will end when we break the bias for a life of fairness to women, and I can envision this new dawn full of spring blossoms.
