Hear from our Deputy Mayors..














As part of International Women's Day celebrations, hear from our

Deputy Mayor Brenda Dacres and Young Deputy Mayor Olivia Mardling:


1. Why do you think it’s important to celebrate International Women’s Day?

I believe it is incredibly important to celebrate international women’s day to recognise the achievements of women throughout history but to also shine a light on the fact that global gender equality is not yet achieved however could be in the future if the world acts now.


Cllr Brenda Dacres, Deputy Mayor of Lewisham

1. Why do you think it’s important to celebrate International Women’s Day?

It’s an important day to shine a light on women and the role we play in society. It is to show that we are more than mothers, sisters and daughters, and that we have played a pivotal part in society and culture since the beginning of time.

It is also important that we discuss and show our past and current contribution to the creative arts, science and technology and encourage women and girls to look to the future and not be boxed in by stereotypes as to what they will do and what they can achieve.
