In last week's episode of The School Show, we looked at all things related to educating boys and, of course, we couldn't overlook our girls! This week The School Show conversation turns to raising the next generation of women and all things gender equality.
Why is the attainment gap between boys and girls narrowing? What do the differences mean and do they matter?
How can schools create a culture of gender equality?
Do girls work better in co-ed or single sex schools, and why?
How do we support girls to find careers that offer equal pay and opportunity? What about careers in STEM?
How do we support wellbeing for girls?
What can schools and parents do to address the gender gap?
Our special guest this week is Anoushka Kapur, Head Girl of GEMS Modern Academy. Anoushka uses her platform as Head Girl to promote gender equality throughout the school. Tune in to find out what the younger generation feel needs to happen to create and nurture gender equality in our schools, and why Anoushka believe her male peers are critical allies in creating a world with true gender equality.
