All Changed: Life for Trinity Women through the decades

These days 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. ‘All Changed’ looks back on what life was like for women in college over the decades. Produced for the Trinity Centre for Gender Equality and Leadership by Angie Mezzetti of Ocarina Productions.

The senior women academics and former lecturers featured are Corinna Salvadori, Barbara Wright, Sara McMurry, Christine Meek, Ita Kirwan, Yvonne Scannell, Vivienne Darling and Jane Grimson. Louise Mulrennan, Gender Equality Officer with TCDSU, also features.
