International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8th March celebrates the achievements of women, raises awareness of gender equality and fundraises for women’s charities. Brighton is the perfect example with innovative Women paving the way across all sectors.
At Coherence Digital, we’re preparing a week of celebrations and kicking off the festivities in our Socials from Friday March 4th. We’ll be focusing on Women in the Digital Industry– those in our agency who innovate, lead and inspire others towards a more inclusive workplace and #BreakTheBias
Managing Director, Julian Tedstone has fantastic literary recommendations and personal musings for the occasion,
International Women's Day is once a year, but each one of these stays with me on a daily basis. I was not as respectful of Jane Eyre as I should have been at 18 (Charlotte, you wouldn't give a flying fig anyway). But Woolf changed the script. Mrs Dalloway easily trumps Joyce's Ulysses for pushing language to the edge of its capabilities in the 20th Century's alpha-male race for the perfect modernist novel. But To the Lighthouse teaches the lesson on those you don't notice, until they are not there. If you want a rollicking yarn, then the Turkish Embassy Letters by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu beats Byron and Kerouac hands down. But I include, for your consideration, Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary. A male writer who conjured a character so determined to re-order the world she took no compromises.'
