International Women's Day 2017

This year’s International Women’s Day is themed #BeBoldForChange, calling on individuals and society at large to work together to forge a better, more inclusive and a gender equal world. This years’ theme is in recognition that each one of us - with women, men and non-binary people joining forces - can be a leader within our own spheres of influence by taking bold pragmatic action to accelerate gender parity. At the Students’ Union, we have collated a list of events, talks and demonstrations that will be taking place on and off campus for International Women’s Day that any student can attend.

Sussex Pink Week

 

You may have noticed students from the Sussex Pink Week team across campus this week, out raising awareness for Breast Cancer and encouraging people to check themselves regularly for signs of the illness.

You can chat to them by Falmer House,  and pick up a t-shirt outside Falmer House. Help be part of the fight against Breast Cancer.
