International Women’s Day in Delft

On International Women’s Day, March 8th, TU Delft has organised a special event for women on campus, one that explores the world of successful women in the scientific world along with some fun.

Called “Happy Women’s Day”, the event is being organised by the Delft International Student Society (DISS) in association with Studium Generale . “Women’s day celebrations have their own tradition across Europe. In Greece, where I am from, we always go out with friends for lunch or something. The idea is for women to get together, without boyfriends or husbands, and have fun. When we spoke to international students, we realised that this was not the case in every culture. So, we decided to start a special event for international women here, because every woman in the university is special and we know that,” says Mary Panagopoulou, Treasurer, Delft International Student Society.
