Fixers Are Keeping It Equal

A trio of Fixers celebrated International Women’s Day by taking the stage at an event, which aims to empower young women across South Wales.

 

The ‘Keeping It Equal’ event - hosted by youth education charity Full Circle at Cardiff City Stadium - featured a variety of female speakers and fun activities to inspire secondary school girls (11-16yrs) to consider a range of jobs, sports and interests that are traditionally seen as male dominated.

 

Fixers Amy Mullen (19) and Suzy Sorby (18), both from Cwmbran, Wales, and Jessie Saul (19) from Bristol were invited to speak to the audience of 200 people about their Fixers projects, alongside Wales rugby international player and wrestler Non Evans.

 

During the event, the attendees tried their hand at different activities related to male dominated areas of sports, science, engineering, and construction, to show that women should be encouraged to achieve whatever they want to.

 

Fixer Jessie Saul, who is currently working with Fixers on her campaign to encourage foreign travel, says: ‘I was very impressed by the event and all the things going on during the day.

 

‘I felt inspired and pleased that girls to came together to celebrate their achievements and aspirations. I hope this is not a one-off and that, alongside with my Fix, things like this can keep making a difference.’
