A celebration of women has been held in Jersey to show what challenges they have to face on a daily basis.
"Be Bold Jersey!" is the first event on the island which has showcased women having grit and persistence to achieve their goals.
The event has been held by The Diversity Network which included speeches from Olympic Gold Medialist sailor, Sarah Ayton OBE and Government Director Saboohi Famili.
Both women discussed how people can overcome adversity if they believe in themselves and are aware of their potential.
Ms Famili who moved to the UK in 1999 as an asylum seeker and became a refugee said she has been able to overcome that issue and now considers herself as a citizen of the world.
