St Peter's female portraits in the news

It may have been almost two months since Professor Louise Richardson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of Oxford, came to St Peter's to unveil the latest additions to our dining hall, but the new female portraits continue to feature in the local and national press.

Alongside recent articles in The Times, The Sunday Times and The Telegraph, the portraits were today the subject of a feature-length piece in The Oxford Times. TV coverage of the unveiling also features in the latest episode of Digital Nation, a BBC round-up of the best local independent television from around the UK.

In early June, St Peter's unveiled two female portraits, one of Prof Christine Greenhalgh, first female Official Fellow (Economics, 1979-2009), and the other of Rt Revd Libby Lane, the first female bishop in the Church of England and a St Peter's alumna (1986, Theology). Both portraits are by Oxford-based artist, Tom Croft.

These portraits will shortly be joined by a tryptic of photo portraits of current and former female fellows, taken by the Oxford photographer, Fran Monks. To see these photos click here.
