Leeds School of Social Sciences

Celebrating International Women's Day

On Monday 9 March Leeds School of Social Sciences will be celebrating International Women’s Day (IWD) holding two different events.

Women International Day

Leeds School of Social Sciences invites you to get involved in International Women's Day

12.00 – 13.00, Calverley 413

The school is hosting the Psychology and Women and Inequalities Section (POWES) of the British Psychology Society (BPS) on Monday 9 March.  The aims of POWES are:-

  • to address gender issues and inequalities in the psychology curriculum

  • to facilitate and develop feminist and emancipatory research, theory and practice

  • to influence public policy in areas such as equal rights, parenting, and employment

Please book your place  

09.00 – 17.00, Portland Lifts

The Psychology Team are running the Feminism in the Lift event in one of Portland lifts from 9am – 5pm. 

Now its 5th year, the idea is to fill the lift with messages of feminist rage. Please join us on the day and tell us what makes you angry as a woman, as a feminist or somebody who disagrees with sexism.  If you’re unable to join us in person join the conversation on twitter #FEMLIFT.

 Find out about other activity taking place across the university to celebrate International Women’s Day.
