Students attend talk from journalist and author Anita AnandPosted on: 06/03/2019
On Thursday 28th February, Dr Khan took a small group of Year 10s and 11s to The North Wall to meet BBC journalist, TV presenter and author: Anita Anand. Anita told us about her recent book, Sophia: Princess, Suffragette, Revolutionary, which tells the magnificent story of a Punjabi Princess who’s life was dedicated to the freedom of women’s speech and vote. It was the most moving and eye opening story I’d ever heard personally and although I didn’t think I had enough interest in suffragettes to be able to enjoy the talk, I most definitely left in awe. As a British Asian myself, I had a real sense of pride whilst listening to Anita talk about an inspiring Asian feminist.
