On Thursday 8th March we celebrate International Women’s Day; a whole day dedicated to recognising the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women across the globe.

The first International Women’s Day occurred over a century ago gathering support from over one million women from Switzerland, Denmark, Austria and Germany.

Today it marks a call for equality and parity for women everywhere.

Walking around Penryn Campus proved an excellent place to ask the female staff and students who roam the halls which women inspire them in their lives and why.



Wonder Woman.
