International Women's Day 2023

The theme of International Women's Day 2023 is #EmbraceEquity. With this in mind, we have run a survey prioritising female voices at Felsted. A selection of the answers can be found below.



Survey questions

Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to answer this survey. We have received some really interesting answers, including some important points raised which will be used for follow-up discussions and as a basis for future PSHE sessions. Any suggestions or issues raised will also be carefully considered as we continue to build upon our inclusive and globally-minded curriculum, community and ethos.




What is the difference between Equity and Equality?
Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity recognises that each person has different circumstances, and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome. More information can be found on the IWD page here.

Why are we gathering this information?
This project was about prioritising and celebrating female voices, but also listening to what our staff and pupils want. Any suggestions or issues raised will be carefully considered and used as a basis to build on going forward.

Is there an International Men's Day?
Yes - 19 November 2023
