The Women at Queen Mary Project ran during the 2007/08 academic year and aimed to:
  1. raise consciousness of the history of Queen Mary and its constituent colleges among students, staff and the wider community;
  2. contribute to QM's aim of widening access to higher education by encouraging applications from different communities both locally and nationally;
  3. contribute to fundraising initiatives, particularly in relation to scholarships, through raising the College's profile while also showing the impact of higher education for those who enter first from their communities.

The Project included a range of events, which collectively aimed to explore the challenges, dilemmas and opportunities for women from different generations and different communities entering higher education for the first time. It also sought to draw parallels between different groups of women for whom the entry into education was unexpected and in some sense disruptive of wider assumptions about the social and cultural role of women.

A key objective of the Project was to communicate to new generations of students and staff something of Queen Mary’s identity and mission, and to explore and celebrate the contribution of women to the four Colleges that underpin the modern institution: Queen Mary College, Westfield College, St Bartholomew’s Hospital Medical College, and The London
Hospital Medical College
