Students, staff and former pupils marked International Women’s Day at Monmouth School for Girls.

Led by Monmouth School for Girls Women’s Forum, former pupils Flora Coutts and Hannah Trefgarne returned to give a presentation at a networking event in the Performing Arts Centre.

Current pupils Caitlin, who was the host, Sophie and Charlie  also spoke at the event which called for a more gender-balanced world.

The theme for 2019 was Balance for Better and highlighted the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.

Flora, who co-founded Coutts Hall Consulting, a specialist search firm to recruit senior lawyers, and Hannah, who works for Haygrove Ltd, a business which grows berries for supermarkets in the  UK and Europe, were well-placed to discuss gender inequality.
