Happy International Women's Day...
The 8th of March is International Women's Day and the theme for this year's centenary celebration is:
"Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathway to decent work for women"
Reflecting on that theme, as someone who has been a teacher and who has also been in tertiary education for ten years, I think of how much I value education and lifelong learning. I also know how fortunate I have been to be able to have access to, and opportunities for, undergraduate and postgraduate studies. Not everyone everywhere is so fortunate, we still have a long way to go.
