Women at Cambridge: Flying the flag for women’s rowing

The second of four films from the Women at Cambridge series I had the pleasure of shooting for Duckrabbit and The University Of Cambridge -“Flying the flag for women’s rowing”

Part of the #RisingTide and #WomenAtCambridge exhibition at The University of Cambridge Library.

(The first film is HERE)

From the Youtube description:-
The impact of women at Cambridge is incalculable. In 1869, Girton College became the first women’s college at Cambridge, and the first in Britain, to offer residential higher education for women. But Cambridge University did not grant degrees to women until the late 1940s, the last British University to do so.
In this second of four films, Dr Lucy Delap, co-curator of Cambridge University Library’s The Rising Tide: Women at Cambridge exhibition, is joined by Gemma-Claire Ali of Newnham Boat Club and Siobhan Cassidy, Chair of Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club, to reflect on the history of women’s rowing in Cambridge. In 2013, Cambridge University Women’s Boat Club moved into a boathouse on the River Cam, 70 years after being founded, and are still fighting for equality in women’s rowing.

I really enjoyed hanging out with Lucy Delap , Siobhan Cassidy & Gemma-Claire Ali at the Newnham College boat club during the making of this.
It was also a real pleasure & honor (as it always is) working with Ben from Duckrabbit, who never ceases to amaze with his kind-hearted, open professionalism.

Shot on multiple Sony A7III’s with Tamron 28-75 and Sony 16-35.
