Fairer sex show they are ones with real talent
YO, I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want, so tell me what you want, what you really really want.
So starts the Spice Girls' anthem Wannabe, which kick started the Girl Power movement in the late 90s. And it's clear the girls of Stroud knew what they wanted when they beat the boys into submission at the Undiscovered Youth Talent Contest.

And it's great that the Stroud girls have found their voice and are making themselves heard.
They're from a generation which faces enormous challenges and a lot of pressure – whether it's to look a certain way, study hard or compete in a harsh economy.
So we're proud and thrilled to see a group of young women full of confidence and talent.
And it's credit to The Door that it has provided a platform – quite literally – for that talent to grow.
Young people need champions, and the space and time to develop their talents and self-confidence, and The Door has done a great job in meeting that need.
And, at 12 years old, its Undiscovered Youth Talent Contest is no small achievement.
We're look forward to the contest's teenage years. And next year? Will it be a boys' zone?
