Portrait of St Hugh’s alumna Sarah Outen included in exhibition of pioneering 21st century women

A specially commissioned portrait of Honorary Fellow Sarah Outen (Biological Science, 2004) has been included in the Royal College of Art’s exhibition “First Women UK”. The exhibition opens today, displaying Anita Corbin’s 10-year project which documents 100 pioneering women of the 21st century.

Sarah Outen is a British athlete, adventurer, bestselling author, and motivational speaker. Sarah was the first woman, and the youngest person, to row solo across the Indian Ocean as well as the Pacific Ocean from Japan to Alaska. Sarah completed her most recent major expedition in November 2015. ‘London2London: Via the World’ involved rowing, cycling and kayaking across 25,000 miles around the Northern Hemisphere.

The exhibition, which is free to the public, is open until 22 August 2018 from noon until 5pm every day, including weekends.
