Women’s History Month 2019
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.
We are marking Women’s History Month in March with an exciting programme of events and activities designed to celebrate Haringey’s women past and present.
From 18th century philanthropist and author Priscilla Wakefield, through to 20th century local politicians Dr Edith Summerskill and Joyce Butler, who was instrumental in introducing laws for gender equality, Stella Dadzie, an educationalist, writer and historian, and Professor Lola Young (Baroness Young of Hornsey), there is a chance to celebrate a whole host of women who have made their mark on the borough.
