International Womens' Day 2021: Read, Watch, Listen

Tuesday 09-03-2021 - 15:08

Women's History Month is a time to reflect on the impact of feminist activism on our lives. It is a time to celebrate the achievements of women before us and around us. However, it will not be surprising to anyone that has been subject to misogyny that we still have a way to go.

The pandemic has brought further focus onto issues such as the gender imbalance of care, the wage gap and misogynoir and other forms of race based sexism in healthcare. In order to provide care, support and solidarity to women affected by these issues, and the many other obstacles they come up against, it's important to take this month to read, learn and reflect on our own life experiences so that we can continue to challenge ourselves and others.

Take a look through the resources below to find things to read, watch and listen by and about women and femme people.
