Girls’ Attitudes Explored… Role models
A new report by Girlguiding has highlighted a role model
deficit among girls and young women. Girls Attitudes Explored…
Role models sheds light on how the narrow range of positive
examples available to girls and young women aged 7 to 21 is linked
to a limited range of aspirations for their futures.
Karren Brady, who is one of Britain’s most high-profile
businesswomen, said, 'Our next generation of successful and
influential women need strong role models if they are to match and,
hopefully, surpass the current generation.
'And this doesn’t just apply to the business world – it’s true
in all walks of life. Strong role models at home and in the local
community are vital to showing girls and young women that they are
capable of achieving great things too.'
