Amazing Resources for International Women's Day
Sacred Heart schools all over the world educate young women, fostering “their intellectual, spiritual, physical and emotional wellbeing.” I was lucky enough to teach at the International School of the Sacred Heart in Tokyo for over a decade. Teaching in a positive and empowering environment changed my educational philosophy forever.
Below are a collection of great resources for use on International Women’s Day. Though they are perfect for use all year at home or in the classroom!
A Mighty Girl is a great website full of “books, toys and movies for smart, confident, and courageous girls.” My favourite posts are those related to Mighty Girl costumes. Take a look at great examples of outfits, also great inspiration for World Book Day costumes.
