The Road to International Women’s Day 2021: Women and Mental Health

Date: Thursday, March 4, 2021

Time: 16:30 (GMT +1)



A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.


March 8th is International Women’s Day and this year’s hashtag Choose to Challenge is asking how we will help to forge a gender equal world. WVPU’s Working Group for Equal Opportunity, in collaboration with all academic departments, is organizing a number of events that will consider and discuss this question in various contexts throughout the first week of March.


From the Psychology Department: Women and Mental Health: An Overview of Female-centered Experiences

MA students Rebecca Mussman and Ryan Ross hope to give an overview on women's mental health, with a few minutes devoted to mental health stats, women's unique experiences working in the mental health fields, and unique COVID circumstances.


Each day of the Road to International Women’s Day will feature an event presented by one of WVPU's academic departments, culminating in a Panel Discussion titled Women and the Pandemic on Friday, March 5th 2021.

Monday: Persistance of Gender Stereotypes at Work

Tuesday: Asylum and Refuge from a Gender Perspective

Wednesdy: Researching Gender in Media Communications

Friday: Women and the Pandemic - Panel discussion


Celebrate women's achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
