Charlotte Rawlinson calls on us to celebrate International Woman’s Day loudly and ensure future centuries hear women’s achievements. Queen Guinevere was denied such celebration but it is critical always to record and speak of women’s success.
Where does a female belong in the 21st century? Are we women who work or ladies who lunch? As a society, the only responsibility we all have is to educate ourselves, with a critical eye, being always aware of who is telling the story and questioning why the story is being told.
Trust does not come ready-wrapped beneath the Christmas tree or in our monthly wage slip. Charlotte Rawlinson explores trust, how we take it for granted and how vital it is to our lives in 2021.
