Sharing is caring! Share News Queen Champions Women As “Agents For Change” by: – March 14, 2011 10 Views no discussions Tweet Share The Queen has just issued her traditional message. This year it focusses on women and describes them as “Agents for Change”.She explains that, 26 million girls are born in the Commonwealth every year, which equates to one per second. Carrying the idea further, she points out that, during the service at Westminster Abbey today, which she will attend as Head of the Commonwealth, nearly four thousand girls will be born. Reflecting on the recent centenary of International Women’s Day she almost directs her many Commonwealth governments to do more to support women and their capacity to contribute.Here is the text:“Last week, on the 8th of March, we marked the hundredth anniversary of the first International Women’s Day. The idea of having a women’s day was first proposed against the backdrop of the rapid industrialisation of the early twentieth century. From small beginnings, this idea has grown to become a widely recognised way of celebrating women around the world. While some people use this day to acknowledge the love, admiration and respect for women, others use it to remember the great social and political strides made both by and for women in the last hundred years. There is no right or wrong approach.“In the Commonwealth, every year, 26 million girls are born; and this equates to one new baby girl arriving almost every second of every day. In the time it takes to hold the Commonwealth Observance Service at Westminster Abbey, nearly four thousand girls will have been born in Commonwealth lands. And every one of these births marks the start of a new life, a journey which begins with the hopes of parents, families and communities, and which is continued through the aspirations of those girls themselves.Source: Sky News Share
