Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument in Central Park
Sculptor Meredith Bergmann has made history by depicting the first statue of real-life women in NYC’s Central Park!
The 14ft bronze monument pays homage to Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, three women who were at the forefront of the US suffragette movement.
The sculpture depicts what Bergmann imagines a conversation between the three would’ve looked like, as they discuss the work still left to do on the movement.
A small but amazing step for acknowledging the fight for women’s rights – OBSESSED!
A-Level & GCSE Students to Receive Predicted Grades
Last week the government announced all students would be receiving their predicted grades, in response to public anger towards the shocking A-Level results announced a week prior.
Students are now being awarded the grades predicted by their teachers rather than results the governments failed algorithm awarded, which left many hugely disappointed.
After a trying few months of uncertainty for GCSE & A-Level students about their academic futures, some good news finally came their way!
