International Women’s Day

An e-book of collected writings. International Women’s Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality.

The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911, and it is now established each year on March 8. Thousands of events occur to honour the economic, political and social achievements of women. Worldwide, organisations, governments, charities, educational institutions, women’s groups, corporations and the media mark the day.

Make It Happen is the theme for International Women’s Day 2015, encouraging effective action for advancing and recognising women.
In this collection staff and students of the University of South Wales join the International Women’s Day celebrations: we find out about the women who have inspired others; we bring you a glimpse of the journeys some of our academics have taken to reach their positions; and we take pride — great pride — in the part we have played in helping to develop the next generation of women of achievement.
