Here at Newnham, we are passionate about women’s rights, education and empowerment. Women are underrepresented at a Graduate level in the university, and so it is vital that women are supported and heard in all aspects of their graduate career.
At Newnham we have an MCR Women’s Officer whose role it is to be a general focal point for these issues at Newnham, and she organises events and represents Newnham at the University level on these issues. If you have a passion for gender equality and would like to run an event, for example a discussion on a particular topic, a book group or organise a group from Newnham to attend a march please email the Women’s Officer (firstname.lastname@example.org). Equally please just email her if you have any concerns or questions.
We also at Newnham have the Newnham Action Group - as we are so lucky to have a large and diverse female student population, we have created this as a platform for sharing information about organisations and causes. This is student led, so please join the group and get involved
If you would like more information about being a female student at Cambridge, or Women’s Rights in the setting of graduate education please follow the link for the CUSU Women’s Campaign
