What is the WOMANifesto?

This document was created during the White Rose DTP Women in Academia event, which was hosted at the University of Sheffield on the 13th December 2019. 

This event comprised a series of workshops, focusing on women's experiences of academia. The women discussed; the challenges and perceived barriers of being a woman in academia, our vision of an inclusive academia , and suggestions of how to work towards that goal.

What do we want?

We want this document to highlight the experiences of early-career researchers who identify as women in academia. We hope this document provides the catalyst for Universities to start taking some serious steps towards improving equality and diversity within academia. 

How can you help?

  • Read the document to learn about women's experiences

  • Contact your Universities - demand more for women
