Happy international women's day!

Happy international women's day everyone! International women's day is the day each year we celebrate the achievements of women and raise awareness of inequalities that exist today.

A few of the inequalities might be how in the UK the average woman earns less than the average man despite a higher level of education, or how millions of women across the world still don't have access to education or contraception.

What's something women have better now than when you were born/younger?

What's something you want to see happen in your lifetime for gender equality?

    I wish there was more equality, like not discriminating on gender, no toxic masculinity, same wages when they do the same job and had the same background (I think this is already the case here but I don't know elsewhere)

    something I would like to see in my lifetime is girls being allowed in the Junior Squad for UHA … I understand woman aint allowed in the adults one, its tradition and all that, which I understand and want to keep it that way, but the junior one is for kids, telling a 8 year old their not allowed in the squad cause their a girl, what message is that sending?
