International Women's Day

It's International Women's Day. Today we celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women whilst also calling for equality.

The theme for this year is #ChooseToChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world, and individually we're all responsible for our own thoughts and actions - all day, every day. It's up to all of us to call out gender bias and inequality, celebrate women's achievements and together we can help create a more inclusive world.

Today we're also going to be celebrating hidden women figures within society and our own university that are often overlooked, and highlighting their achievements. We want to celebrate women who have pioneered movements, championed social change and made invaluable contributions to society. Recent research suggested that women are represented in only 0.5% of recorded history - we need to ensure their contributions are not easily forgotten. We're also going to be celebrating female-led organisations and inspirational members of our faculties.
