“International Women's Day is so much more than just a day of celebrating women. It’s a day where we get the chance to understand how we ALL can better uplift women, understand the issues women experience, and utilize our identities and backgrounds to ensure the problems of our past and our today don’t remain our problems tomorrow.”

“It doesn't matter whether you do art and craft or STEM - it's about doing what you are passionate about and if it happens to be 'looked down upon' as a feminine subject, you can help make it important!!! So here's me in me-made pullover and mittens😊”



@drkarishah

“One of my life threads is to try to help women of all backgrounds have access to resources and opportunities. IWD reminds me there are still so many glass ceilings for women and girls all around the world.”

“Whatever women do, they must do it twice as well, to be thought half as good as men. I am so grateful for all the trailblazing women that push boundaries, shatter barriers, and #BreakTheBias to empower other women.”



@carys.lh

“I am so lucky to have grown up in a family full of strong women and to be surrounded by them in my friends, family and tutors and being a women in Oxford and higher education is an amazing opportunity to get the best education possible but also to use it to fight for others rights and to #BreakTheBias, especially in regards to women with special educational needs and disabilities, who all should realise how beautiful and strong they are.”

“There’s nothing more rewarding than female friendships with motivated women, where you build each other up and are determined to see the other thrive!”



@amz.barnes

“Being supported by such incredible and inspiring women at That Oxford Girl is empowering. TOG is an incredible example of women supporting women, and I feel so lucky to be part of that.”
