Happy International Women’s Day!
This year’s campaign theme is #BreakTheBias – find out more at the IWD website
To mark IWD, Dr Anne-Marie Evans is hosting an online event on Thursday 10th March with acclaimed playwright Ade Solanke. Ade will be talking about her play Phillis in London. The play explores the life of Phillis Wheatley – an enslaved woman – who was famously the first African-American woman to publish a book of poetry, and only the second American woman to do so. Find out more and book a ticket here.
You can also celebrate IWD2022 by calling into the Fountains Learning Centre to see their YSJ Women display, which explores resources from our archives that provide a glimpse into the changing lives of female students over the years.
