Happy International Women’s Day

Happy International Women’s Day!

This International Women's Day, we celebrate the remarkable achievements of women that have made this world a better and more inclusive place.

In honour of International Women's Day 2023's #EmbraceEquity campaign theme, Dulwich launched the #EmbraceEquity Digital Art Competition, inviting students across our schools to design and share their digital art to commemorate women's achievements in society, helping to inspire creativity and spark dialogue. It is a part of our ongoing efforts to promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusiveness (DEI) and raise awareness about the fifth UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs), Gender Equality.

In its second year, the digital art competition for International Women's Day saw 70 entries from across the EiM family of schools. We are immensely proud to see students of all age groups taking huge initiative in participating in this competition, paying tribute to women through their unique perspectives and artistic expressions. The competition is much more than a showcase of art; it allows our students to take this opportunity to reflect on women that inspire them and how they can themselves puruse their goals and ambitions, as well as actions they can take to contribute to building a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world.

We are proud to announce this year's winners!

This work honours Frida Kahlo, a leading female Latin American painter of the 20th century. Her vibrant style blends traditional Mexican and modernist elements, and she used her art to express opposition to social injustice and gender discrimination. Despite facing many challenges, her creativity and resilience continue to inspire many.

This artwork pays tribute to Beatrix Potter, a famous British writer and illustrator known for her children's literature, particularly "Peter Rabbit". Her works feature animals as main characters and have educational significance. Potter was also a naturalist and conservationist dedicated to preserving Britain's nature and wildlife.


Winner of Y10-13 group
Lili T.
Dulwich College (Singapore)


This work pays tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a former US Supreme Court Justice and one of the most influential women of the twentieth century. Her extensive knowledge and experience in the legal field, pursuit of fairness and justice, and contributions to gender equality and human rights make her a legal luminary and an inspiration for many.

Our students' impressive works of art garnered high praise from our organisers and judging panel.

This is the second year of the International Women's Day digital art competition, with 70 entries across the EiM schools. The competition celebrates the achievements of women throughout history, from Boudica to Vivienne Westwood. It is amazing to see the range of entries featuring inspiring women and the presentation of the digital artwork.

This fantastic competition has quickly become a very popular element of the yearly Worldwise Events programme, empowering our global EiM student community to explore and express key Global Citizenship topics through the medium of art. It's fantastic to see all the wonderful, creative, and thought-provoking artworks submitted by our students under this year's theme, "Embrace Equity". Congratulations to all the winners!
