A collaboration with UCL's Institute for Women’s Health and UCL Equalities and Diversity team - exploring the presence and absence of women at UCL. 

In 1878, UCL became the first university in England to admit women on equal terms with men. Join us to explore what roles and spaces these first women occupied, and how this has changed since 1878. Photographs profiling women working across the university will also feature in the show, celebrating the diversity of UCL’s female staff and UCL’s achievements in being awarded an institutional Athena SWAN Silver Award.

Also at the event will be the IWD Story Booth: Have you got a story to tell about women’s presence and absence at UCL? Or an idea about how we could move towards greater gender equality? If so, we would love to hear from you - come and visit our Story Booth to share this with the team. All contributions will be added to an archive documenting Women and UCL. If you have any material (letters, photographs etc) that you would like to share please do bring these along! The Story Booth will be open 12:00-15:30, 9th March in the North Cloisters. Please visit www.uclwomensday.org for more information and a list of all International Women’s Day events. 


Opening: Wednesday 9th March 2016, 12-2PM
