62% of teachers in secondary schools are women but only 39% of secondary headteachers are female

Only 7% of women in education will attempt to negotiate their initial salary offer, compared to 57% of their male counterparts

1 in 4 teachers who quit the classroom in recent years were women aged 30-39

What would you do to make a change today if you were 10% braver?

This is the ultimate guide for women in education. Written by leading members of the grassroots #WomenEd movement, it offers guidance on how to attain and succeed in leaderships positions, alongside nuanced analysis and debate of topics including: the gender pay gap, gender stereotyping in schools and beyond, the realities experienced by BME leaders and how flexible working cultures can redress inequities.

Each chapter gives advice on how we can all change things for the better, as individuals, in our schools, and across the system, and how you can be part of the #WomenEd movement to improve equality in education for everyone.

Don′t miss BEING 10% BRAVER - the sequel book to 10% Braver that will inspire you to take your #10percentbraver journey further. Filled with real-life stories of women leaders in education, drawn from across the #WomenEd community. Out now!


This book matters because it is guaranteed to inspire, to educate and to spark a much-needed clamour for women to assume roles of influence throughout our education system.
