The theme of the day ‘Empowered Women, empower the world’ is displayed across the fitted t-shirt uniform of all the staff at the event, one of which will be given to each attendee in the gift bag. The bag supports women in India escaping the sex trade and features a handle of braided saris.

Julie talked about a fair future for her children to grow up in where #MeToo is a distant memory and equality is expected.
