    Female role models increase women’s willingness to compete, reduces gender stereotypes and lead to higher self-confidence (Meier, Niessen-Ruenzi & Ruenzi, 2018).

    Girls are much more likely to consider a career in STEM if they have a role model who inspires them (Microsoft, 2018).

Take the lead in your own life

The Female Lead Society is an extension of the Female Lead book, which was distributed free to 18,000 schools alongside teaching resources. It featured 60 stories of remarkable women, from scientists to fire-fighters, some leading conventionals lives and some alternative. The stories together show young women that there are myriad ways to live and thrive, but what is vital is to take the lead in your own life.

This message is at the centre of our project and at the centre of our Schools Societies. Taking the lead in your own life simply means choosing your direction, making decisions about your future. For centuries women have done what they were told, had their choices restricted and their opportunities denied.

Now that we have new prospects and freedoms, we want girls to believe in their own agency and power.
