After 12 years' service, Rosemary Brown has stepped down as chair of our Board of Trustees. We thank her for her commitment, good humour and unflagging support to all of us over the years.

Our new chair is Harriet Evans, Professor Emerita and formerly head of the Chinese section at the University of Westminster. Harriet has written and consulted extensively on women, gender and human rights in China. She joined the Board of Trustees in 2011.
