40 For The Future

Celebrating the Successes of Forty Downing Women for International Women’s Day

As 2020 marks 40 years since the admission of women to Downing, we asked 40 of the College’s women – past and present – to reflect on what ‘success’ means to them and how Downing has played a part in that success. In the run-up to International Women’s Day 2020, these students, Fellows, staff, and alumnae demonstrate the enormous diversity of career paths and lifestyles which Downing women pursue and the areas in which they continue to inspire.

Thank you to all who took part in this ‘40 For the Future’ project.

Happy International Women’s Day 2020!
