In celebration of International Women’s Day, Chevening Scholars have been sharing the advice they wish they’d known when they younger about calling out gender bias, discrimination, and stereotyping.

March is the month of International Women’s Day (IWD) celebrations around the world. We know that many scholars are dedicated to taking strides towards gender equality, and we’re proud that so many of you have chosen to mark this occasion.

This year’s IWD campaign theme is #BreakTheBias, prompting us to imagine a world free of bias and discrimination.
