It only takes one girl to make a difference …

Standard

In the thoughts expressed in my previous posting, there is no consideration of gender in the educational equation. I have just come across another great link from Yashar Ali’s Facebook page, to a Youtube video created by Gabriella. The video clip, entitled ‘It only takes a girl.’ asks us to reflect on the lived experience of a great percentage of the world’s female population.

Gabriella created this deeply challenging reflection with the support of her sisters and mother, and posted it a few days ago in her Facebook page. Within two days it attracted almost 7500 views. The thoughts I discussed in my previous post on educational imperatives take on an even more critical urgency when you consider her powerful message.

Thankyou Gabriella for making a difference.
