British High Commission partners with Guardian Media on International Women's Day

Guardian Media and the British High Commission are working together on empowering girls through education, in recognition of International Women's Day, Thursday.

The campaign will allow a girl the chance to be a Guardian News Editor for a day.

The British High Commission in Port-of-Spain has issued the following statement in recognition of International Women's Day:

"No country can flourish if half of its population is left behind. Gender equality should be considered “easy to do and hard to ignore”.
