This International Women’s Day, the University of Sussex is celebrating the lives and achievements of some incredible women with local connections.

Brighton & Hove has a long and proud history at the forefront of the push for gender equality. We decided to connect some of our fantastic current students with nearby locations - that have links to women who have inspired the movement – and some who are keeping it alive today.

On Sunday we will be sharing these images on the University’s social media channels, including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn. Some of the locations are more obvious than others. But can you recognise them all?

To give you a flavour of what to expect here's one of the images.

Look out for the posts - and the answers will be revealed on Monday.

Happy International Women’s Day!
