Women's History Month

 March 2020 

March is Women's History Month, an annual month-long observance which empowers the women of today by exploring the women of yesterday. We’re celebrating the innovations women have brought to our communities, and commemorating those who dedicated their lives to fighting patriarchy.

At BCUSU, we firmly believe in each woman’s right to shape her own life – you can use this page to check out events hosted by our student groups this month, so click below and get involved!

More Information

The colours green, white, and purple were the colours of the Women’s Social and Political Union – a movement which fought tirelessly for the equal right of women to vote in British elections. In 1928 this became fully realised with the Representation of the People (Equal Franchise) Act.
