I’m Angela Alexander and I’m NUS Scotland’s Women’s Officer.
On International Women’s Day, it’s important to remember there are women all over the world who continue to have to fight for their right to be heard, their right to choose and their right to live their lives in the way they want to.
And the election of a misogynistic President in the US has shown us how quickly women’s rights can come under fire.
But as well as fighting for our rights, we also need to celebrate women and their achievements. #InspireHerFuture is our campaign to inspire and empower women students in areas where they are under-represented such as politics, science and engineering and sport. Through the #InspireHerFuture campaign, we want to share stories of women’s achievements to inspire and empower women students.
I know that Scotland is full of incredible women with inspiring stories – I need your help to share them!
If you studying or working in one of these areas or you know a woman who is and wants to share her story, please fill in the nomination form on NUS Scotland’s website by Monday 27th March at 12 noon.
