March is Women's History Month!
This Women's History Month calendar lists public events that relate to women's history and is scheduled to occur during the month of March. The events are hosted by a range of organisations - government, academic, professional and community-based - in the history sector.
If you are organising an event during March 2021, and if it relates to Women's History, you are welcome to publicise it here. Please consider carefully whether face-to-face events are viable in your community. Then click on the 'Host your own event' button at the foot of this page to get started. Please note that there may be a delay of up to 48 hours (for moderation) before your event becomes visible on the website.
The concept of Women's History Month was revived by the Royal Historical Society of Victoria during 2019 with support from several interested organisations. This calendar is hosted by the History Council of Victoria.
