The children and staff at St. Luke’s school in Westminster were honoured to receive a visit from Justina Mutale, who was awarded “African woman of the year” in 2012. Justina is well known on the international stage for her equalities work, particularly in the field of gender equality. Ms. Mutale spent the morning speaking to the children about her equalities work and talking about how individuals can overcome their barrier to achieve their goals, with reference to famous female leaders in history.

Older children then remained with Ms. Mutale as she spoke more specifically about the similarities in the aspirations of both men and women and the ‘because I am a girl’ campaign.
