For International Women's Day (IWD) 2022 we have invited faculty and researchers from the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science to nominate work that addresses this year's theme 'Break the Bias' and issues in gender inequality today.
For a second year, we have also invited current students in the department to respond to the theme and contribute a post for the Psychology LSE blog. Below you can read all the posts in the series.
We appreciate that the work shown here does not fully represent the work of the department or of all the women who make up our academics, researchers, or students both now and historically.
