This March we will be celebrating the social, political, and cultural achievements that women have made throughout history.

We will also be taking the time to highlight the inequalities that women still face today and use our platform to promote women’s equality within the University and the professional world. Find out how you can get involved by browsing our events and activities below!


Three ways you can get involved

Join the Women’s student community group

This community group is free to join and works to represent and campaign for change for women studying at the University. Any student that self-identifies as a woman can join the community, and help to shape the work that we do running events, creating institutional change, and ensuring women’s voices are heard at UEL.
