Our congratulations to Dame Professor Sally C Davies, the first woman ever to be appointed Chief Medical Officer for the UK Department of Health. Sally and leading female research colleagues helped launch the limited-edition print of Suffrage Science at a public debate entitled: Are Women Changing Science? (7pm) at the Institute of Contemporary Arts on 9th March.

Following the debate (from 9pm) leading women scientists were awarded Suffrage Heirloom Jewellery and Textiles created by Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. Design work was shown in the ICA theatre throughout the reception.
