New Online Exhibition: Women and Power? A Magdalen Story

24 May 2021

Our latest online exhibition is now live!

‘Women and Power? A Magdalen Story’ raises questions about how power has been gendered at Magdalen College, Oxford, over more than 560 years. Why has power been dominated by men in institutions such as Magdalen? How have women accepted, used, and resisted power structures within College? In what contexts have women found ways to shape Magdalen, for themselves, for their peers, and for future generations?

Who speaks and who is heard are essential political questions for any community. One aim for ‘Women and Power? A Magdalen Story’ is to stimulate debate on how we build inclusive, diverse, and meaningful communities, for today and for the future. We hope that this online version for 2021 will help to widen this much-needed conversation. Explore the site now:
