From careers to breast health: schoolgirls to attend International Women’s Day event

Around 60 schoolgirls from Hampshire will attend an event on International Women’s Day to hear from inspirational women and learn about breast health.

The 11 to 13-year-olds will spend the day at Portsmouth Football Club’s home stadium, Fratton Park. They’ll get to meet women working in male-dominated industries, including sport, construction and the emergency services.

Meet the women driving our research

Discover the women making an impact through their research at the University. The research conducted by our female scholars is varied, and covers the areas of health, security, the environment, the arts and crime. It is all breaking new ground and making a difference to what we know and how we live. Through their teaching, they’re inspiring a new generation to go further still.
