This Saturday, the 8th March, marks International Women’s Day. Around the world, celebrations of respect, appreciation and love take place to honour women from all walks of life. The United Nations’ theme for International Women’s Day this year is ‘Equality for Women is Progress for All’.

Here at the University of Nottingham we decided to celebrate this by speaking to three of the most powerful women on campus.

This is the announcement on URN of Ellie McWilliam becoming SU President this time last year:

Two other women at different stages of their career at the University are the Chief Executive of your Students’ Union, Sarah Gosling, and Sarah O’Hara, one of seven Pro-Vice Chancellors here at the University.

We got the three of them together to discuss their experiences as influential women in the Students’ Union and in the University.
