What's on this International Women's Day?

Gossip for Good (ALL DAY)

We're turning this stereotype about women on its head this International Women's Day. Send an uplifting message to a fellow woman at Keele, letting them know how much you appreciate them! Use this form and we'll pass the message onto them!

 

Everyday Sexism Discussion Board Unfortunately, many women spend International Women's Day justifying why it is needed. We aren't often taken seriously when we share our experiences of sexism. Inspired by Laura Bates Everyday Sexism Project, that's why we decided to create this space for you - we want to give Keele women an opportunity to share their everyday experiences. Whether you feel the instances are minor or serious, outrageously offensive or normalised, we want you to feel free to use this space to say as much or as little as you like. By sharing your story, you're showing the world that sexism does exist, it is faced by women everyday and it is a valid problem. 

Women in the Workplace: The Challenges and the Triumphs (Talk + Q&A)

(12:30-13:30)

Join us for this special IWD lunchtime talk discussing women's challenges and triumphs in the workplace! You will hear from one of Keele's very own community champions who will be discussing her experiences as a woman in a male-dominated workplace, followed by a GMB Union rep talking about gender and equality in the workplace.
