Women’s History Month runs throughout March and includes International Women’s Day on Tuesday 8 March. The month honours the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women throughout history.

Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month and provides an opportunity to remember, recognise and celebrate the meaningful contributions that women have made to society throughout history.

Throughout the month our Gender Equality and Aurora staff networks will be running a programme of activity for employees, including staff development sessions. 

From 7-11 March, Team Derby ran This Derby Girl Can Week - a celebration of women in sport, which provided opportunities for female students and staff to get active and overcome any barriers they are facing.

Breaking the bias 

The University's Gender Equality Network have curated a Spotify playlist to celebrate women in music, on the theme of breaking the bias.
