Gender Focus.

Cambridge Assessment is delighted to sponsor The Rising Tide: Women at Cambridge, a collection of exhibitions, events, and displays exploring the past, present, and future of women at Cambridge. The Rising Tide marks 150 years since the founding of Cambridge’s first women’s college, Girton.

The Milstein Exhibition Centre at the Cambridge University Library will be hosting a major exhibition from Monday 14 October 2019 to Saturday 21 March 2020. The lived experiences of women at Cambridge, the continuing work towards equality, and the careers of some of the women who shaped the institution (and the world) will be told through costumes, letters, and audio-visual material. Visitors will get the chance to explore rarely seen collections from across the University and Colleges. 

Pop-up exhibitions and displays will also run at the Library and across the city. Throughout its course The Rising Tide will facilitate assembly, debate and conversation for today's Cambridge women to discuss their current experience. 

The programme of events from October 2019 to January 2020 can be found here
