A Look Back at International Women’s Day Celebrations

Today is International Women’s Day, a day to celebrate and recognize the achievements of bold and inspirational women who have enacted positive change in the world. Through the study of primary sources we can shed light on stories of powerful women who may have previously been largely ignored in public discourse.

In honor of International Women’s Day we are excited to share five primary source documents from our newest archive Women’s Studies Archive: Women’s Issues and Identities related to International Women’s Day celebrations. The Women’s Studies Archive will be available later this month on the Gale Primary Sources platform. To learn more about the archive and the collections included visit gale.com/WomensHistory.
