40 years of women marked with interviews

Fitzwilliam today launches the first interview of a series marking 40 years since the first women matriculated at the College.

Professor Nicola Padfield, the Master, is the first interviewee. She recalls her relationship with the College she joined in 1991, and her education and career experience. 

Nicky also expresses her wishes for the future in the interview. Nicky is stepping down as Master at the end of September, with Baroness Sally Morgan succeeding her on 1 October.

We have spoken to a number of those who made up the first cohort of women, who matriculated in October 1979, plus a range of alumnae from across the 40 years since. 

Interviews will be published regularly, so remember to check social media and the 40 years of women at Fitz page for updates.

- Please contact Matt McGeehan in the Development Office if you wish to be interviewed for 40 years of women, or with any news.
