International Women's Day Luncheon

Thursday, 08 March 2018 10:30 until Thursday, 08 March 2018 16:30

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.

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.

• The talk by 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.

• The third speaker is Sandra Simmonds, who was for several years married to an Iranian. Her talk is entitled " Life under the Veil ".
