40 Years of Women at the House

Christ Church Regatta 1985Christ Church started to mark its 40 Years of Women celebrations with a Women’s Careers and Networking Event attended by both alumni and students of the House in March 2020. But then the pandemic struck! Our original plan to mark this historic anniversary in September 2020 with a weekend of events had to be postponed. However, we are pleased to report that it has been possible to move the entire weekend programme to 17-19 September 2021. Details will be publicised in due course.


ChCh Women Hockey Team 1986In the meantime, we are doing as much as we can online, with careers evenings, Zoom talks, and a series of films on alumnae; as well as a special Trinity edition of Christ Church Matters concentrating on Women at the House, and a women’s portrait project. Once the lockdown has lifted, we will be advertising some smaller events in the lead up to September, so please read the regular e-Matters which are sent out.




40th Anniversary lapel badgeWe would love to hear from all our alumnae about their experiences at Christ Church. We are planning to create a collage of photos, images and snippets, and an archive of written reminiscences, for everyone to enjoy at the September 2021 weekend. We cannot promise to return anything sent in so please only send copies, not originals, to the Development Office or digital copies to development.office@chch.ox.ac.uk. We will be thanking those who contribute by sending out a special 40th Anniversary lapel badge in return.
