Women's History Month is an annual declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. It is celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women's Day on March 8.
It's Women's History Month - despite making up over 50% of the British population, women as part of the historical past and narrative are still often overlooked.
During March 2014, we are opening up a series of podcasts on women and social change as a reminder of what women have had to do to be recognised as equal members of society. Furthermore, if pay scales, employment positions and violence are used as a judge then equality is still a long way off in the UK.
Women’s History Month is an annual event, held from 1-31 March, that aims to raise knowledge and awareness of women’s history, to celebrate and promote women’s achievements, and to provide women with role models and inspiration.
We are a non-profit organisation run by a small group of female volunteers. As a group of women currently living in London we are promoting the celebration of Women’s History Month in the UK, however we see our work as being part of the international women’s history movement seeking to remember and celebrate women’s contributions.
For too long women’s history and achievements have been forgotten, overlooked, erased and devalued. Women’s History Month raises awareness and empowers women by discovering, documenting and celebrating women’s lives and achievements. Our vision is of a diverse society where everyone’s contributions are celebrated and recognised equally.
