International Women’s Day

March 12, 2020

Our Ballarat Guides have acknowledged International Women’s Day in various ways.

Delacombe Junior Guides enjoyed activities in their unit that included:

  • discussing the aims of International Women’s Day
  • wearing purple hair ribbons
  • suggesting programming ideas (as part of the aim of empowering girls)
  • running game relating to gender stereotypes (as part of the aim of gender equality)
  • identifying female role models and their personality traits.  The most popular suggestions were mum, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and even their friends and older sisters.  They put a lot of thought into the task for 5-9 year olds.
  • playing a game that benefited from people working together to achieve the same goal
  • an at-home task to show courage and strength in new or difficult tasks during the next week (one of the Guide laws that co-incides with  being a strong female).
