Inspiring Reads: Women’s History Month 2024

Women’s History Month started as just a week-long celebration in the 1980s. It has since evolved into a month-long celebration, including International Women's Day on 8 March, that champions women’s rights as well as the achievements of women throughout history. This year's Women’s History Month, staff at the EGI are reviewing their favourite books by and about women.

Women’s History Month 2024

March is Women's History Month and a time to highlight and reflect on how women have historically been discriminated against and overlooked both in their daily lives, in the historical record and for their contributions across society. It is a time to re-evaluate and challenge how the past has been presented and to celebrate the achievements of women, past and present.
