Womens History Month Graphic 2020

There are a lot of things going on around the world at the moment. But, we need not forget about those important and historical occasions that we have commemorated for centuries.  

The UN has recognised women’s History Month since 1975. Usually, throughout March, there are various community events, internet blog series, television presentations and entertainment specials. Staged to look back on women’s achievements, celebrate the progress made by women around the world and to remember that there is still work to be done. However, due to the current situation that we find ourselves in, events have had to be cancelled.

There are still ways to get involved though and celebrate this important month. Women’s History Month has a multitude of content to browse through, including an online exhibition – Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote. This exhibition features handwritten letters, speeches, photographs and scrapbooks, created by American suffragists who persisted for more than 70 years to win voting rights for women. It tells the story of the largest reform movement in American history with documents and artefacts from the women who changed political history 100 years ago.

Other things that you can do to celebrate Women’s History Month are:

  • Read a biography about a female pioneer, perhaps Amelia Earhart, one of the first ladies of aviation, paving the way for women in the flight industry. Find one here.
  • Watch a film about women’s movement origin and suffragettes Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. Find one here.
  • Volunteer or donate to an organisation for women’s education. Find one here.
  • Post a link about your most-admired woman in history.
