Celebrating 150th anniversary of education
In 1868, nine women were admitted to the University of London to enrol for a ‘special examination’ course. This was the first time in Britain that women had gained access to university education and, though it was to be over 10 years before they were admitted on equal terms with men to read for the same degree programmes, this modest event was an immensely significant moment for the University, for women like myself and for society as a whole.
Throughout 2018, the University is celebrating the 150th anniversary of this first ‘foot in the door’ with a series of events and activities.
The pioneering work of the University of London regarding women’s education continues. Given the extraordinary reach of the University of London and its member institutions, we have the opportunity to generate debate around the issue of gender equality – in particular the lack of women in professorial and leadership roles – and to actively provide opportunities for the next generation of women.
Now, as the first female Pro Vice-Chancellor of the University of London (International), I am delighted to be heading the University’s ‘Leading Women’ campaign, which I hope will raise the profile of the women internationally.
Throughout my career, I have been committed to quality accessible education across the world. In the current role as Pro Vice-Chancellor, I have responsibility for ‘The World’s Largest Classroom’, with 51,000 students on our distance learning programmes, and over 1.3million learners enrolled on our MOOCs. The reach and challenge of delivering internationally gives me enormous pleasure because, throughout my career, I have been driven by the desire to make quality education accessible for all through teaching and training tomorrow’s educators.
My vision for the future is one in which women all over the world play an integral role in public life, and are recognised and rewarded for their contribution, and, in face, work as equals alongside men to enrich our global workplaces. I hope that the ‘Leading Women; campaign will draw people together to help make this vision a reality.
