International Women’s Day
A pioneering aviator, Betty Kirby-Green flew from Croydon to Cape Town in a plane called ‘The Burberry’. Pictured here in 1937 alongside Flying Officer Arthur Clouston.

Inspiring the Next GenerationFor International Women’s Day 2022, Burberry is partnering once again with the National Literacy Trust. Our donation will provide bespoke literature, selected from a curated International Women’s Day booklist, to participating schools in the Marcus Rashford school library project.
Through supporting this initiative, we encourage girls to expand their literary horizons and to be inspired by female authors whose work encourages them to dream big. Through the power of imagination, we want to enable girls of a young age to envision a future where they can be anything they want.
