I feel incredibly fortunate to hold two Oxford University degrees, my BMBCh and then later my DPhil and am fully aware that this is only possible because of the struggle and tenacity of the women who broke down the barriers over years ago. I am privileged that I can pay back some of that debt by continuing to teach and mentor the current Oxford students. Sadly, despite huge leaps forward in educational equality, women and girls still have to fight for the right to a basic education in many parts of the world today: a challenge which we as a community need to address.
It would not be possible for me to be where I am without the women that have gone before me. However, years have passed since the first women collected their degrees from Oxford University, and yet equality in gender and diversity remains tenuous. As an Associate Professor leading research into fertility preservation at Oxford I hope to inspire others. Through teaching, public communication, as a mentor and supervisor, I am determined to support and encourage the next generation, whatever their journey. More female role models are needed at senior levels in STEM, academia and all areas of society and this is something I am proud to do.
The issue of inequality is one of the most harmful in society, yet with commitment and more importantly action, equality for all is achievable within a generation. As a woman health professional, I am proud to have been making meaningful contributions to the health of society. ificantly, my work impacts on improving maternal and child health and health systems strengthening.
I doff my hat to the women who defied the odds to pave the way for a seamless opportunity for me and other women to have elite education at Oxford. Beyond access, we need to concretise our efforts to ensure a truly diverse world of women empowerment —of gender equality at all levels, and where racial and cultural pluralism is the order of the day.
I am honoured to be a woman studying at Oxford. By participating in science communication and public engagement, I hope to disseminate my research, and the opportunities available for women to pursue STEM. That will truly be something to celebrate.
I feel privileged and honoured to continue my postgraduate education at Oxford. It is marvellous that it has been a years since the first women graduated from Oxford. It is thanks to them, that I am able to pursue my studies at Oxford. I hope to inspire others to not only be great clinicians and scientists, but to speak up and break down the barriers for other women and for those from less privileged backgrounds. However, without the women of Oxford who studied before me, and those women who have supervised and mentored me through my recent MRes, it would not have been possible.
I wish to wholeheartedly thank them alongside celebrating years of women at Oxford. Unfortunately, gender inequalities in health care have a ificant impact, affecting both the physical and mental health of millions of women and girls throughout the world. My goal is to empower women. Supporting fellow female healthcare professionals in accessing education is also hugely important to me.
It has, however, highlighted to me the of obstacles women face in pursuing education due to the many roles they often juggle. I therefore applaud Oxford for marking this momentous occasion but also look forward to seeing the institution further its support for all women seeking education, whatever their personal circumstances, which will broaden the value women can bring to academia in the years and decades to come". It is an occasion to celebrate the multiple ways in which women have contributed to the University and women graduates have made a mark in the world.

Celebration - as we think of the many trailblazing women who took Oxford degrees and paved the way towards our current society, which holds more opportunity for gender equality with every passing decade. Reflection - as so much remains to be done to increase the proportion and diversity of women in leadership roles.
Our department has a rich history of exceptional women - starting with Dr Anne Anderson who ed the University of Oxford in and became university lecturer and honorary consultant in clinical reproductive physiology in the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. She led research into the birth process in sheep and also took on studies of the causes and management of preterm labour, gynaecological endocrinology, and infertility.
She was a major contributor to evidence-based health care and made a huge impact, so much so, our lecture theatre is named in her honour. Many outstanding women are following in her footsteps and continue to contribute and inspire other women to improve health knowledge for the good of their communities. So to celebrate this very important centenary, here are just a few of the amazing women flying the flag in our department.
