The Queen’s Women’s Network

A place for independent minds to connect

Queenswomen from all four decades have joined with the College to create a series of events and initiatives throughout 2018-2020 that celebrate the admission of women in 1979 and create a lasting legacy for future Queenswomen.

The Queen’s Women’s Network launched on the eve of International Women’s Day 2018 in Oxford and on the day itself in London. The above photo shows current Queenswomen – students, academics and staff – following the IWD2018 call to #pressforprogress.

The Network will provide professional and social networking opportunities for current and Old Members, especially women. It will help everyone, within and across the generations, to celebrate success, promote equality and inclusion and champion change. The Network will also enable careers support and two-way mentoring.

Establishing an archive and creating a portrait exhibition

We will tell the story of women’s involvement in College, showcasing the diversity of all types of Queenswomen, their backgrounds and life journeys, understand the range of different experiences women had during their time at College and give support to other Queenswomen by drawing on experiences across the generations.
