The Female Lead - posted 1st May

Now more than ever, there is a need for a strong sense of community. That’s what The Female Lead society at Witchford Village College has tried to establish. The Female Lead is a charity, which hopes to tackle the issues of low self-esteem in women by reducing gender stereotypes and providing realistic role models that young women can aspire to be like. As word spread of the society, so did the numbers, by the third session there were over 30 girls all openly discussing the question: ‘What makes a good role model?’ Looking forward to the future, hopefully The Female Lead will seek to rise the community of girls at Witchford by championing supporting one another, rather than tearing each other down.
