What is Women's+ History Month

Women's+ History Month is the annual celebration of women+’s history, liberation, and successes held every March.

International Women’s Day falls within this month, taking place on March 8th, and is a global holiday to commemorate and celebrate women+’s achievements and rights, and to reinforce a commitment to women’s equality.

This year, our theme for Women's+ History Month is ‘celebration’, and the UEA community will be hosting a wide series of events around this theme. As part of the month, our partners, UEA Sport, have put on a series of events centred around the theme of ‘This Girl Can’, a national campaign that celebrates active women+, whilst encouraging women+ to take part in physical activity without fear of judgement.

What does Women+ mean?

The phrases ‘men’ and ‘women’ do not accurately represent the breadth or fluidity of gender. Intentionally adding a ‘+’ after ‘women’ demonstrates that this month is to celebrate, and is inclusive of, all those that identify or partially identify as women.

Women Academics in Conversation

Women Academics in Conversation Podcast cover image

As a part of Women's+ History Month, we're launching a series of podcasts celebrating the work women academics do at UEA, in partnership with UEA staff.

Two academics from different faculties will be paired in what we hope will be a rich and varied conversation that reveals some interesting pathways to where they are today. We hope to inspire the young women in our community and show them how great academic journeys begin.

Episodes are around 30-45 minutes in length and you can find them right here!
