David Tennant Attends Theirworld's Annual International Woman's Day Breakfast


David Tennant was amongst guests who attended Theirworld's annual International Woman's Day Breakfast in London this morning. This year's event aimed to highlight their #WriteTheWrong campaign which focuses on the fight for girl's education worldwide.
One in five children don't have access to an education and are left vulnerable to poverty, abuse, slavery and human trafficking.

Three amazing young women - who are members of Theirworld's network of Global Youth Ambassadors - shared their stories of overcoming the odds to fight for girls' education worldwide.
Shazia Ramzan, Kainat Riaz and Yara Eid were targeted simply for wanting to go to school and realise their potential.
Shazia and Kainat were campaigning in Pakistan with their school friend Malala Yousafzai when all three were shot and injured on their school bus in 2012. Yara grew up in Gaza experiencing terrible attacks on her home and school. All three are now studying in the United Kingdom and campaigning for their own - and other young women’s - education.
This morning's event highlighted Theirworld's #WriteTheWrong campaign for the 260 million children out of school - and its focus on safe schools where children can learn free from fear and violence.
