internationalwomensday landscape

International Women’s Day is especially significant for MWF this year as we celebrate our centenary in 2017. Today and every day we are grateful for the hard work of the pioneering medical women who came before us and as an organisation we strive to move forward, pushing for equality and fairness for women in medicine.

The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is ‘Be Bold For Change’, a principle that MWF was founded upon. In 1917, 190 women coming together at a time when it was difficult to have your voice heard as a woman, let alone as a woman in medicine, is nothing short of inspiring.

Today we celebrate medical women and their past achievements and we look forward to a bright future. We encourage you to nominate a friend or colleague or put yourself forward for our 100th Anniversary Prize. We are awarding three prizes, to a senior established doctor, an established doctor and an up and coming doctor to celebrate the diversity of our membership and shout about your achievements.
