IEGS Marks International Women's Day
International Women's Day (IWD), March 8th, was marked at Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet by the Amnesty Group.
The group encouraged girls and women at the school to come with a scar or cut painted on their face or some other part of their body in recognition that many women around the world are still victims of domestic violence, rape and other atrocities.
"Although this was organised at short notice just before we ended for half-term, I think it's excellent that the girls are doing something to mark International Women's Day at IEG," said Dr Benedikz, principal of IEGS. "It's inspiring to see them take a stand. Let's put an end to violence against women around the world."
