Metamorpho-SISTER

Celebrating transformational women who inspire and motivate us into a better future

What does feminine leadership really look like? Who are our present day heroines? What will it take to transform ourselves and our lives at this critical moment in history? These super-women will be here to answer these vital questions and many more.

Curated and produced by an incredible all-female team from Coventry (14-17yrs), MetamorphoSISTER has been created to bring together young people from the West Midlands to learn together, unite together and act together.

In partnership with the Positive Youth Foundation.

Featuring:

Maggie Murphy
Maggie Murphy is the General Manager at Lewes FC, the only club in the world to have equal pay for its male and female players. She is also one of the leaders behind Equal Playing Field, a global initiative that seeks to promote opportunity, equality and respect for women and girls in football. This organisation made its name when 30 women from more than 20 countries climbed Mt Kilimanjaro, laid a full-size football pitch and a played a 90-minute Guinness World Record match.

Mima Letts
Mima Letts is the founder and director of Tree Sparks a student-led social enterprise which wants to ignite the conversation about trees. Mima says: ‘Deciding to study forestry was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, but at the time it was scary and felt ludicrous. I had no idea what forestry actually was and that I was about to step into a male-dominated world. That’s when I realised things needed to change. I started speaking up and trying to make forestry more accessible to not just women, but everyone. I became the role model I wished I could have seen when I first decided to study forestry.’
