International Women's Day

International Women's Day (IWD) is a global event held on 8 March each year celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, and IWD2022 will be Tuesday 8 March 2022 in Week 9 of Term 2. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. Significant activity is witnessed worldwide as groups come together to celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness against bias, and take action for equality.

Shown below is a gallery of women, and groups who have championed women, who have inspired students and staff in their academic or professional lives. This gallery was started in 2021 and is intended to be added to each year, and you are invited to submit your own nomination(s) to be added to the gallery ahead of IWD2022. Students, staff, and other contributors will be invited to browse through the gallery on 8 March, to learn more about the inspirational women and groups who have been nominated.
