Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free

The Institute for Women’s Health is collaborating with The Girl at The Door and the UCL Equalities and Diversity team on an exhibition exploring the presence and absence of women at UCL.

In 1878, UCL became the first university in England to admit women on equal terms with men. Join us to explore what roles and spaces these first women occupied, and how this has changed since 1878. Photographs profiling women working across the university will also feature in the show, celebrating the diversity of UCL’s female staff and UCL’s achievements in being awarded an institutional Athena SWAN Silver Award.
