The one thing that grated was when talked about how many more men there are in management positions in the work place stressing that it is important for the girls to work hard and do well finishing this off by saying that the girls would not want to be managed by a man! Imagine a male head saying the same about women.
I was at the 6.50pm talk and that wasn't quite what she said. She said that it was likely that our girls would be managed by a man, and she wanted them to know that they could be the managers of tomorrow and wanted them to be prepared for that. I found it much more annoying that she failed to introduce herself at the start of the speech so I spent quite a few minutes wondering who she was and whether she was the 'warm up act'. Turned out she was the real deal!
I was quite surprised at how pro single sex education her speech was. Apparently in a co-ed school, the boys don't let the girls near the bunsen burners. My son would challenge that quite vociferously! Slightly OTT. But I liked her, overall.
