40 Years of Women at the House

The first women matriculated at Christ Church in 1980. In 2020 we will mark 40 years of co-education and will celebrate the contribution that women in many different fields have made to the life of the House.

On 3rd March Christ Church kicked off its 40 Years of Women celebrations with a Women’s Careers and Networking Event attended by both alumni and students of the House.

Below is a list of upcoming 40th Anniversary events:

  1. Saturday 30th May – TOM Event: This event will include a special panel of female academics and is also the last day of Summer Eights.
  2. 27th-30th May – Summer Eights: We would like to extend a special invitation to this event to any alumnae who have previously rowed for the House. There will be a barbecue and bar at the Boat House on Saturday from 1pm. The Boat Club Society Dinner will also occur in Hall that evening. All members of the Boat Club Society and their guests (aged 16+) are invited to join the crews for drinks in the Master’s garden from 7pm and for dinner in Hall at 7.45pm.
