It seems announcing a Margaret Thatcher scholarship just isn't enough for some people.
The university even has a whole page on its website dedicated to women at Oxford, and special mentions go to Nobel Chemistry Prize winner Dorothy Hodgkin and broadcaster Zeinab Badawi.
But Boris aside, we wanted to know who you thought would make a good female figure to name a college after. We asked, and you did delivered:
@HPUKStudents ok rosa luxemburg then
@HPUKStudents Mary Seacole.
@HPUKStudents @HuffPostUK Mo Mowlam
@lucy_aitken @HPUKStudents @LeanInOrg yes great point. Camila Batmanghelidjh would be good & you'd hope Ox ungrads would spell correctly...
"@HPUKStudents: So Boris has called for a Maggie Thatcher college at Oxford. Are there any other women you think would be more suitable?nope
@HPUKStudents @HuffPostUK Mary Woolstonecraft. The hyena in petticoats.
@HPUKStudents @HuffPostUK Emmeline Pankhurst.
@PumpkinLondon @HPUKStudents Sheryl Sandberg
@PumpkinLondon @HPUKStudents Less for FB, more for @LeanInOrg which is promoting equality in the workplace and encouraging women to lead
@HPUKStudents Elizabeth Fry; repair the damage done by taking her off the notes.
@HPUKStudents Lucy Pinder
RT @MikefromLFE: @HPUKStudents @HuffPostUK Almost any other woman
@HPUKStudents @HuffPostUK yes! how about Emmeline Pankhurst or Emily Wilding Davison for starters?
@HPUKStudents Thatcher would be good, but what about alumni like Aung San suu kyi? She is very inspiring, although a long college name!
