Diversity is in our DNA

March 17, 2021

We are delighted to hear from Poppy Watkins (OP, 2011) about another tribute to Rosalind Franklin, the most famous Old Paulina scientist. Mount Anvil, the developer of Hampstead Manor, has commissioned a tondo portrait of Rosalind Franklin to mark International Women’s Month.  The virtual unveiling of the bronze sculpture, by Keziah Burt, on 15 March 2021 was followed by a discussion on ‘How Rosalind paved the way for women in science, and why we need more women in STEM’.

Hampstead Manor has a close link with our history, since it is built  on the site of Westfield College, founded by Constance Maynard in 1882 and to which Frances Gray, High Mistress 1904-27, was appointed as a lecturer in 1883.
