The vice-rector for Equality and Social Action, Maite Vilalta, gave today the awards to the top bachelor and master’s degree final projects with gender perspective at the UB. The awards were named Clara Campoamor Prize (TFG) and Rosalind Franklin Prize (TFM). Both awards promote the integration of gender perspective in research and teaching and make students’ researches on gender-related issues visible. The vice-rector framed the awards in the actions for “cultural change” involving a gender perspective.

The Clara Campoamor Prize was given to Cristina Surin, student of the bachelor’s degree in Modern Languages and Literature, for Freedom is a state of body: rewriting the body in Caribbean female poetry. There were honourable mentions given to TFG in several knowledge areas: to the student of Physics Neus Llop and the project The K-modes algorithm applied to gender analysis; to Jordina Samper Ribas, student of Medicine, for the project Sex bias in clinical research: representation fo women in randomized clinical trials of major impact publications, and to Padrícia Soler Penya, student of Law, for Les primers dones juristes de Catalunya. Evolució del nombre de dones estudiants de Dret i col·legiades a Catalunya (1910 a 1968). The Rosalind Franklin Prize was awarded to Alicia Ares Vilar, student of the master’s degree in Women, Gender and Citizenship, for the project Cómo transitamos la supervivencia del cáncer de mama: aproximación a quince vivencias de mujeres desde una perspectiva feminista.

Called by the Unit of Equality and funded by the Vice-rector’s Office of Equality and Social Actions, the awards were decided by an interdisciplinary jury. To choose the awardees, the jury considered the relevance of the topic, the originality in its development, the theoretical frame, coherence, methodological rigor as well as the results, conclusions and the contributed advance in the field.

The names of Clara Campoamor, known politician and activist for women’s rights in the thirties, and the scientist Rosalind Franklin, essential figure in the discovery of the DNA structure, were chosen to name the awards under vote among the attendants, who had to choose from a list of names of distinguished women –proposed by the Equality Unit.
