Women’s History Month 2020
In line with government guidance to reduce non-essential social contact and to ease the pressure on attendees who are deciding whether they should attend events following government advice, we have sadly taken the decision that as of today, 17 March 2020, all Women’s History Month events are cancelled.
We would like to thank all our contributors, organisers and attendees for their passion, commitment and for making this year’s programme a true reflection of the inspiring contribution that women have made - and continue to make - to Haringey and beyond.
We thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times.
Women’s History Month raises awareness and empowers women by discovering, documenting and celebrating women’s lives and achievements. Our vision is of a diverse society where everyone’s contributions are celebrated and recognised equally.
An exciting programme of events and activities designed to celebrate Haringey’s women past and present will be taking place at different venues across the borough throughout March 2020.
Discussions, craft activities, performances and film screenings will all be celebrating a whole host of women who have made their mark on the borough and beyond – from local pioneer Priscilla Wakefield in the 18th century to Stella Dadzie, an educationalist, writer and historian well-known for her involvement in the Black Women’s Movement from the 1980s and legendary storyteller and Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison - and many more besides.
This year’s key events include:
- Our launch event at Bruce castle Museum on Sunday 1 March at 1.30pm
- A celebration of International Women’s Day on Sunday 8 March from 11am to 7pm at Lordship Hub - Download the International Women's Day Celebration flyer (PDF, 166KB)
