This is a very important sponsorship deal for the women of Pembroke College because it marks a milestone in the CollegeÂs history and a major breakthrough for female students.
For Pembroke CollegeÂs female students, the support of an international organisation means financial independence and a womenÂs rugby team to be proud of. Until now the womenÂs rugby team has had to borrow kit from the menÂs team, so that on the pitch, they were never considered as professional or as talented as their male counterparts.
Phillipa Jose, member of Pembroke CollegeÂs rugby team believes that rugby is just the tip of the iceberg. ÂItÂs not about competing with the guys, itÂs about tackling the low self esteem amongst female students. The team's success is sending a message to our female contemporaries to be confident, try new things, break new barriers and put yourself forwardÂ
Glenda Stone, CEO of Aurora Gender Capital Management says, ÂBefore long, these women will be embarking on their careers. It is so important that they face their future with confidence and enthusiasm - expecting equal opportunities and looking for gender equality in the workplace. It is through this generation of women and the next that we can work towards better opportunities and the economic advancement of women.Â
