Cambridge Girl Talk was launched by former students Alina Khakoo and Kitty Grady as a space for self-identifying women to share stories, celebrate achievements and champion womanhood in all its forms. Whether astrophysics or ankle boots, HSPS or PMS, Cambridge Girl Talk is about bringing women into dialogue, providing the inspiration and tools to spark change.
