Quale modo migliore per festeggiare la primavera ma soprattutto per celebrare un giorno dedicato a tutte le donne?
Chiedetelo a Emma della classe 3C di Martignacco che ha avuto una splendida idea. Ispirata dal percorso svolto in classe relativo a “Inspirational Women”, “Inspirational Scientists”, “Women in STEM”, “Women in Space”, “The Codebreaking Women of Blechley Park” and “The Women who helped NASA”, Emma ci ha fatto una graditissima sorpresa. Spirito di iniziativa? Certo! Emma, come potete immaginare dalla foto, ci ha fatto vivere un dolce e inaspettato momento in classe. Piattini rosa e assaggio di un soffice MIMOSE CAKE, il tutto accompagnato da uno studio approfondito e personale, in inglese, sull’origine dell’International Women’s Day.
Thanks very much, Emma!

Siete curiosi di scoprire il lavoro di Emma? Qui di seguito vi riporto alcune parti. Inoltre, se vorrete improvvisarvi pasticcieri, in fondo troverete anche gli ingredienti per il dolce. Ma quale sarà la procedura per realizzarlo? Non lo ha svelato.
International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year to commemorate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women worldwide. The day is also an opportunity to highlight the ongoing struggle for gender equality and women's empowerment.
In 1910, the International Socialist Women's Conference in Copenhagen proposed an annual International Women's Day, which was first celebrated on March 19, 1911, in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland.
Since then, the celebration of IWD has expanded to include women from all corners of the globe. Women use this opportunity to raise awareness about gender-based discrimination, violence against women, and the need for equal opportunities in education, employment, and politics.
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed a great amount of gender inequalities worldwide. Women have been affected by the pandemic, with many losing their jobs or having to leave the workforce to care for children and elderly relatives, increasing Women's unpaid care work and placing a greater burden on women's time and resources. The pandemic has also led to a rise in gender-based violence, with lockdowns and social distancing measures trapping women with abusive partners.
In conclusion, International Women's Day is an important day to celebrate women's achievements and to call for gender equality. This day reminds us that, despite the progress made, there is still much work to be done.
