The Rhodes Project, which examines the experience of female Rhodes Scholars , was created in 2004 by Ann Olivarius . [7] Rhodes Scholars are chosen from around the world for graduate study at the University of Oxford. The Rhodes Scholars, who were born in the 1950s to 1980s and who earned graduate and professional degrees until the early 2000s. [7] [8] The project is concerned with the current situation of women. One interviewee told the researchers: “It would be hard to imagine what it would be like to be able to …” How I would like to be able to get the best out of the scenes. The blatant examples are something that you have to deal with. ” [9]
