Birmingham arts and humanities alumnae share their stories for International Women's Day!

Alumnae from across the College of Arts and Law have shared their personal and professional stories as part of a filming project to mark International Women's Day.

Seventeen female graduates in Law, History, Archaeology, Anthropology, Theology, Philosophy, Modern Languages, English, Drama, Art History, and Music, shared their incredible stories on film to commemorate International Women's Day on 8 March.

From working with local communities on building projects in Nepal to setting up their own award-winning companies, and from giving a platform to female writers to pioneering projects engaging young people with our cultural heritage, our alumnae have amazing stories to share.

All seventeen films are available below. A huge thank you to the alumnae who took part in this project!
