Women’s History Month 2023: How to celebrate in London, from talks and tours to comedy nights
Women’s History Month is observed every March, with International Women’s Day taking place on March 8.
London institutions will be celebrating with events across the capital throughout the month, from talks and tours, to comedy nights and art workshops.
Women’s History Month is observed annually around the world. It is an extension of International Women’s Day, which has been celebrated since the early 1900s.
More than a century later, women around the world are still fighting for equality.
This March, women are encouraged to celebrate the achievements they have made, and to highlight issues that they continue to face.
