For International Women’s Day 2021, the Royal College of Art (RCA) are celebrating the achievements of women at the RCA, and highlighting some recent student and alumni projects that take action for equality.


The theme for International Women’s Day 2021 is #ChooseToChallenge. It proposes that a challenged world is an alert world and that from challenge comes change. Reflecting on what this means for her practice and work at the RCA, Professor Teal Triggs, co-founder of the Women’s Design + Research Unit (WD+RU), commented:

‘In a world where the new normal is constant change, an urgency exists for the survival of supportive communities. In my own practice, I am exploring the role intergenerational mentoring might bring for professional knowledge-sharing between womxn working in the field of graphic design. Together we can impact and empower change.’
