International Women's Day 2019

Live from Theirworld’s International Women’s Day breakfast event in London and hosted by Sarah Brown and U.S. activist and youth skills campaigner Jamira Burley, this Better Angels episode features inspiring women from a variety of sectors joining together to discuss safe schools and how to break down barriers to girls’ education.

You will hear from actor Indira Varma, TV presenters Anita Rani and Fiona Phillips and Labour MP Yvette Cooper.

The event was headlined by young women, including Shazia Ramzan and Kainat Riaz – who were attacked by terrorists in 2012 on their way home from school in Pakistan. The opening panel also included Yara Eid, a remarkable young Palestinian woman who grew up in Gaza and continued her education despite experiencing attacks on her home and school.

At the event, Theirworld’s 2019 Inspiration Award and #writethewrong Award were presented to Jude Kelly CBE and Shaheed Fatima QC respectively for their contributions to the girls’ education movement.

Join Theirworld, Sarah Brown and Jamira Burley in breaking down the barriers to girls’ education.
