March is Women’s History Month

Across Melbourne, during March, there is a plethora of wonderful events celebrating Women’s History.

Link to calendar of Women’s History events.

The concept of Women’s History Month was revived by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria which convened a gathering of representatives of interested organisations during 2019. This calendar is hosted by the History Council of Victoria.

The RHSV is promoting events every day through Facebook during March and our History Victoria Bookshop has a focus on books about and by women. We also have a display in our Cabinet of Curiosities of women’s history material from our collection.

This calendar includes a number of upcoming public events that relate to women’s history. Each event is located in Victoria, Australia, and is scheduled to occur during the month of March. The events are hosted by a range of organisations – government, academic, professional and community-based – in the history sector.

If you are organising an event in Victoria during March, and if it relates to Women’s History, you are welcome to publicise it on the calendar. Click on the calendar link above, then click on the ‘Host your own event’ button at the foot of the page to get started. Please note that there may be a delay of up to 48 hours (for moderation) before your event becomes visible on the website.

See you at an event soon.
