2013 has been a tumultuous period for gender politics. This makes Bluestocking Week an even more critical moment for women working in higher education. The necessity of resistance to sexism in public life has perhaps never been so pronounced and this year the theme is "Holding the Line", with the focus being on women in leadership, either through formal roles or through informal networks and channels.
