Twelve academics, as well as the current SU President, have shared their thoughts on what International Women’s Day means to them.

The feature, published in advance of tomorrow’s celebration, also serves to highlight some of the important research taking place at the University, in areas as diverse as genetics, human rights, governance and reproductive health.

Professor Ruth Northway says: It is commonly said that knowledge is power and the development of knowledge is a key purpose of education. For International Women’s Day my wish, therefore, is for a world in which all girls will be given the opportunity for education and that all women will be encouraged to continue their education to the extent they wish.
