In anticipation of International Women’s Day and to mark the centenary of the 1918 Representation of the People Act, which gave women the vote in UK for the first time, we invite influential University of Sussex alumnae back to campus for a panel debate, hosted by the university's Pro-Vice Chancellor for Equality and Diversity Professor Claire Annesley.
Laura McDermott, Creative Director at Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, will be in conversation with Dr Maria Balshaw (the first female director in Tate’s 120-year history), Catherine Mayer (author and co-founder of The Women’s Equality Party), Dr Philippa Gregory (novelist, broadcaster and philanthropist) and Dr Helen Pankhurst (author, activist, great-granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst & granddaughter of Sylvia Pankhurst, and ambassador for CARE International).
The panel will share reflections on their contributions to the fields of art and politics and their thoughts on being role models for future female leaders.
Proceeds from this event will be donated to the Sussex Fund - see here for more information:
