THE FEMALE LEAD SOCIETY
IN SCHOOLS ACROSS THE GLOBE
"The common themes of: pursuing your passion, demonstrating intellectual curiosity, daring to be different, taking risks and asking for help all resonated with our holistic approach to education.
This book has not only highlighted current positive role models, it has also provided a platform for the sharing of these key messages to our girls, emphasising the traits, values and qualities we want them to emulate. The Female Lead has helped empower and motivate the girls to do this."

STUDENTS MEET CAST INCLUDING OPRAH WINFREY AND REESE WITHERSPOON
“We were very pleased to receive these invitations to the premiere of a film that so rightly celebrates ‘girl power’ and is full of positive female role models. We are fortunate that our girls at The Hurlingham Academy have strong role models in the school but it is lovely to be able to send some of them to something like this as a celebration of their hard work.
“This experience has taught me that everyone has a light and as long as you don’t underestimate yourself, no one can underestimate you.”
STUDENTS MEET ROSAMUND PIKE AT RADIOACTIVE SCREENING
Rosamund Pike, who plays Marie Curie, and Marjane Satrapi, the director, discussed the movie 'Radioactive' and their thoughts on how she refused to allow her gender to prevent her from following a career as a scientist.
Radioactive provided great inspiration to us to ensure our gender never holds us back.
