After her own aspirations to be a dancer never materialised, she said she felt excited for her daughters' futures.

Some girls can be contacted by up to 11 boys a night asking for nude images, the schools watchdog for England says. In an Ofsted survey, girls explained that if they blocked boys on social media "they just create multiple accounts to harass you". The report also found nine in 10 girls believed that sexist name-calling and being sent unwanted explicit photos or videos happened "a lot" or "sometimes" between their peers. The watchdog is warning that sexual harassment has become "normalised" among school-age children. Students often do not see the point of reporting abuse and many teachers underestimate the scale of these problems, Ofsted says. In the survey, girls said boys "just won't take no for an answer" when asking for explicit images. At one school, the girls told inspectors they can be contacted by up to 10 or 11 different boys a night asking for nude or semi-nude images.
