Each for Equal: What Our Girls Want

As part of our International Women’s Day assembly, six members of our Student Leadership Council talked about what they want for themselves and all women.

I want to develop a healthy body image, without constantly comparing myself to other girls around me and what I see on social media.

I wish girls didn’t have this habit of comparing themselves, their body and their appearance to other girls of their age.

I will make an effort to appreciate both the worth of myself and all of the girls around me, by complimenting them on their individual talents and qualities.

Each for equal.

I want to someday become a business owner. I wish all women had the opportunity and support to rise in corporate ranks and obtain high-paying jobs. I will mentor young women wanting to enter business one day.

Each for equal.

I want to not be treated as a commodity. I wish all girls felt beautiful within themselves and didn’t need to be validated by others. I will make the girls around me feel valued for who they are.

Each for equal.

I want to be able to catch the bus home from work at night. I wish all women could go out alone in the evening and not have to fear for their safety.

I will assist non-profit agencies in providing women around the world with practical strategies to ensure they’re safe when out alone at night.

Each for equal.

Olivia von Bertoch

I want to have mine, as well as all other girls’ achievements recognised in sports. I wish female athletes and their sporting achievements were as highly recognised, encouraged and publicised in the media as men’s sports.

I will continue to promote and encourage young girls to play sports; giving them positive reinforcement, so they are not only able to develop friendships, but also important life skills such as teamwork, leadership and confidence.

Each for equal.

Georgia Portlock

I want to be judged based on my character, rather than the way I dress. I wish women were not blamed for the way the world chooses to objectify us. I will not tolerate the shaming of women for their body or what they choose to wear.

Each for equal.
