March’s Book Display for International Women’s Day

This Sunday, March 8th, is International Women’s Day. To mark the occasion, this month we have book display of works which explore the history of women’s suffrage. The display is located in the Upper Gladstone Link so do take a look the next time you visit the library.

As well as physical books, we have lots of e-resources on the topic of women’s suffrage across the world (see previous blog post for information about Bodleian’s trials on Women’s studies e-resources). Below you’ll find books covering women’s movements in Asia, Europe, America, New Zealand, the Netherlands, as well as Britain. These are available online to University members, outside the library- just make sure you’re signed on with your single sign-on.

There’s lots going on across Oxford, to mark International Women’s day. Musicians from across the university will perform this evening at Somerville College, performing choral and instrumental works by female composers.  St Hugh’s College has a series of talks and exhibits to celebrate their alumni who worked at Bletchley Park during the Second World War. Christ Church College will host a wikipedia edit-a-thon aimed at increasing the visibility of women in academia.
