HGAED Feminist Society Holds First Meeting

Dhillan from Year 10 at Deptford Green School (centre) gave an inspiring presentation about body positivity at the first meeting of our new Feminist Society. "Be proud of what makes you not fit the social norm," she told students. "To look good is not what our body is for."

HGAED FemSoc (5)

Dhillan suggested some strategies girls can use to increase body positivity, including unfollowing social media accounts that make you feel insecure. "Don't shame other people for the choices they make about their own bodies," she added. In a survey, 90% of teenage girls said they were unhappy with their bodies, she told the audience.

Belen (left), one of the student organisers, said: "We hope the new society will help students improve their self-esteem and empower people to fight for women's rights."

Safia (right) added: "So many women are unconfident about their bodies. That's why talks like Dhillan's are important. We hope the HGAED Feminist Society grows and has lots of different talks." 

The Feminist Society was started following a conference on feminism at Blackheath School which the girls attended, and where they heard Dhillan speak.

What feminism means for me... "Feminism is making sure the women of the world are fairly treated. Feminism is equality. Women and men should benefit from the same priviliges at work, home and play. Women are not here to serve men, we are brilliant and have special and unique qualities. The world needs us."
