Projects & Initiatives

The VMWS has embarked on several initiatives and projects over the years. These aim to either shed further light on the issues that we advocate for, or assist medical women both professionally and personally.

The VMWS Archiving Project

We have a rich history and we celebrate it proudly, as we are fortunate to have a long line of creative and empowered women that paved the way for us since the 1800s. We collect, digitise and aim to share their stories.
