Soroptimists from all over East Anglia danced out our message for International Women’s Day at Silver Street Bridge on 8 March.
We’re asking our Government to urge other countries to give all the girls in the world an education.
Forty million girls in poorer countries of the world don’t get a full education which makes them more susceptible to poverty, pregnancy and violence. We are asking our local MP’s to support the move.
Young dancers from the Stagecoach Cambridge School led the performance by spelling out phrases like, Let Us Learn, Teach Us and See Us Grow. Education is a key focus for Soroptimists world-wide.
And as a practical step, Soroptimists are collecting hundreds of books for a charity to send directly to schools in South Africa.
