Manchester Metropolitan University in collaboration with the River & Rowing Museum in Henley-in-Thames are accepting applications for a fully funded Ph.D. titled ‘Women’s Role in British Competitive Rowing during the Second Half of the Twentieth Century’.

The aim of the project is to address the visible and invisible barriers that have influenced British women’s engagement with competitive rowing since 1945. Research areas to be addressed include the key events in the timeline of women’s involvement in competitive rowing, the individuals involved, and the trajectory of female engagement with the Olympic Games.
