International Women’s Week
The SRC is working with the other student bodies and with clubs and societies to organise International Women’s Week between Monday 5th March and Friday 9th March.
Centred around International Women’s Day on Thursday 8th March, the week celebrates the achievements of women and promotes gender equality within our University and beyond.
Fundraising efforts will focus on Glasgow Women’s Aid. This charity supports women and girls who have been raped, sexually assaulted, or sexually abused at some point in their life. Their umbrella organisation Rape Crisis Scotland is the SRC’s partner in our pioneering ‘Let’s talk about sexual violence’ prevention training.
