Jane Kenyon comments on why we must embrace equity ahead of International Women’s Day

This year, International Women’s Day is all about ‘Embracing Equity’ and Jane Kenyon, founder of social enterprise Girls Out Loud, who strive to do this every single day through the work they do with vulnerable teenage girls, comments on why focusing on equity is more important now than ever.
