New Film

In 2016 over half the students in Trinity are female, but in the 1960s a woman on campus was a rare sight. Women had to be off campus by 6.30pm, there was no maternity leave and chaperones were appointed for the first women scholars on campus. These are some of memories recalled in this fascinating look back at life for women in Trinity college. Produced by Angie Mezzetti for Ocarina Productions the film poses questions for universities about the equality of men and women in the institutions when it comes to career path and promotion. – See more at: Changed
