St John's Women's Officer Izzy Fewster has been nominated as one of the most influential female students in a national competition called Future 100. The competition is sponsored by JP Morgan and run by the student newspaper The Tab.
Over the past nine months as Women's Officer Izzy has represented a community of around 300 undergraduate women at both the College and University level. During this time she has successfully campaigned for women-only hours in the College gym, set up a free sanitary product scheme, co-ordinated mandatory sexual consent workshops for 120 freshers, assisted with the launch of our student/alumni Women's Network and helped to organise numerous events including the first ever Women’s Festival.
Izzy is clearly thrilled about the nomination:
'Although it is a tough and challenging role, it has also been an extremely rewarding experience working with the JCR Committee. The highlight for me was helping to launch the Women's Network and assisting with the Women's Festival. What an inspiring community we have of female students and alumnae! I look forward to continuing my involvement with the Women’s Network as an alumna when I graduate this summer.'
Voting is now open to determine the top 100 women, voting closes on Wednesday 18th April at 5 p.m.
