In conversation with Dr John Thompson and Dr Miranda Griffin

In May 1974, Dr John Thompson (1971) and Professor Sir Graeme Davies (1967) co-sponsored the motion to repeal the statute that said that only men could be Members of St Catharine's. In September 1979, the first female undergraduates matriculated to study at St Catharine's College.

Join a conversation between Dr John Thompson (1971), Emeritus Fellow in History, and Dr Miranda Griffin (2007), Senior Tutor and Fellow in French, in their discussion on the admission of women to St Catharine's College, and how the College has changed since.

Featuring footage of Graduation from June 2019, and students Noor Jafree, George Cristin-Marks, and Sophie Anson.
