International Women’s Day is a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women in science and medicine, and to encourage the next generation to follow in their footsteps. Be bold for change!!
International Women’s Day is important not just as a focus on the challenges still to be overcome but a celebration of what has been achieved and an acknowledgement of all the amazing women that have quietly helped change the world.
International Women's Day is a great way of celebrating the valuable contributions to society that women make across the world. While inequality is still prevalent across the globe it is important to support women to achieve, succeed, and be role models to younger generations.

International Women’s Day is a great opportunity to stand up and make it known you want equality for women, if we can get it right for women then there will be knock on benefits for others too and the Equality and Diversity Group at Exeter’s Medical School are working hard to help make this happen.

I returned to scientific research after having children - I found that I had my research skills plus newly developed abilities to juggle projects & cope with deadlines better than I had done before having my family.
