International Women's Day: Dame Sally Visits Downing St

Dame Sally was among a party of inspirational women invited to a reception at Downing Street last week, in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Part of a star-studded guest list, including Erin O’Conner, Helena Bonham-Carter, Cherie Blair, Joan Collins and Theresa May, Dame Sally had the chance to speak with Prime Minister David Cameron, who has famously heaped praise on Burlington Danes Academy.

Recognising the social, political and economic achievements of women worldwide, International Women’s Day also shines a light on issues still in desperate need of attention.

The theme of this year’s event was inspiring change.
