Women's History Month
Welcome to the Women’s History Month campaigns page. Here you’ll find events that may take your fancy for the month. Remember to check back as the month goes on for more events.
Why are we celebrating the month?
Women’s History Month is celebrated every March in the UK, USA and Australia. It’s designed to celebrate the contribution women have made to history and society – particularly for achievements that may have previously gone unnoticed.
The month is also often used to address issues of inequality and discrimination that many women around the world face.
So enjoy women’s history month, learn a lot and be bold for change!
