The Edit: the power of equality

The story of women around the world, why educating girls is the key to social progress and more in this week’s #TheEdit.
11th Mar 2022

This week, the world celebrated International Women’s Day. It’s a chance to champion the achievements and progress that women have made throughout history, but it’s also a time to reflect on how we can continue to forge an equal world. 

Inequalities are not equally felt, and it’s essential that we recognise the continued need for systemic change to the way we think about women – in business, society and the world.
