International Women’s Day is an opportunity for all sectors and industries to reflect on women’s economic, political, and social achievements and how we can confront bias in our work and lives. We have pulled together a series of old and new material below on the everyday reality of systemic gender bias in the academic workplace.
March is also Women’s History Month and at LSE we’re specifically celebrating the achievements of the women of LSE. Check out the LSE history blog for more and get involved using #LSEwomen. On Thursday 24 March 2016, 6.30-8pm, LSE Centennial Professor Mary Evans will explore influential women in LSE’s history and the ‘woman question’ at LSE at After Beatrice: the hidden women in LSE’s history. This event is free and open to all on a first come, first served basis.
