We look forward to welcoming many members and non-members to our special event for
International Women’s Day

Come and celebrate women from all around the world with fellow Townswomen and friends.

We will have three speakers in attendance and we look forward to hearing from the following inspiring women:

• Professor Leanne Hodson left school before completing her final year. A few years later, while doing an evening class in sports physiology and nutrition, she found she wanted to understand more about nutrition and human health. Now she is a professor at Oxford University and a leading expert on human metabolism, and will speak about women in science and her own field.

• Major Lucy Lewis – who, while serving with the Royal Engineers, was the first woman to operate as a bomb disposal officer – is called ‘It’s a Woman’s Life in the Army’. This light-hearted look at her 10 years in the army follows a career that includes time as a mountain expedition leader and an inspector of military prisons.

•  Our third speaker is Sandra Simmonds who will be talking about ‘life under the veil’.
