As part of International Women's Day events at UCL, the Institute for Women's Health presents the UCL debut of SEVEN, a documentary play based on the real life stories of seven women's rights activists from Nigeria, Afghanistan, Guatemala, Russia, Pakistan, Northern Ireland and Cambodia.

Voicing the stories of SEVEN courageous women through UCL's most senior men challenges us (as individuals and as a world-leading university) to re-think the status of women in societies and the role that UCL can play - through academic influence and impact - to improve the lives of women internationally.

The reading will be followed by a conversation with the audience.

The play was created by seven playwrights: Paula Cizmar, Catherine Filloux, Gail Kriegel, Carol K. Mack, Ruth Margraff, Anna Deveare-Smith and Susan Yankowitz, in collaboration with Vital Voices Global Partnership.

Drinks reception - 19:45
