My name is Alice and I am the Women’s Rep at Barts and The London.
This week is a great chance to celebrate the achievements of our wonderful women students, as well as opening discussion around the areas of healthcare and student life that we uniquely face.
This year, Women’s Week is supporting two amazing charities. Refuge is one of our RAG charities, which aims to protect women at children at risk of domestic violence. Any funds raised, from sales at Women’s Week Tables to money collected in our collection boxes will be donated to this wonderful cause. Secondly, we are collecting donations for Solace, a charity who run refuges for women fleeing violence and abuse. Keep your eyes peeled for the information regarding donations- the donation box is in the BLSA Office and there are RAG Points on offer to the student group who donates the most!
I hope to see you at as many events as possible, and happy International Women’s Day!
