#Empowered ~ Jacqueline Wilson
Growing up Jacqueline Wilson was the talk of the playground. But aside to writing gripping novels she taught us the power of the feminist icon in literature, without us even knowing!
This is why she is our #EMPOWERED women of the week.
The author who inspired generations of women, launched her 100th book, a storey about a young suffragette. Wilson joined the ‘Walk In Her Shoes’ campaign which asks people to walk 10,000 steps a day for week to ‘walk in solidarity with women and girls across the globe who still bear the brunt of poverty, vulnerability and domestic servitude.’
“Many of the issues that the suffragettes fought for 100 years ago still exist.”
She promotes a very important message that women’s rights are still a contemporary issue!
