Putting Women Back Into History
Join us for a stimulating and inspiring evening featuring invited speaker Dr. Ailsa Holland, author of On This Day She. Dr. Holland will share the stories of women who have shaped our history but who have often been forgotten or deliberately ignored.
How can we put these women back into history and correct this imbalance? Only by identifying, celebrating, and increasing visibility of women’s achievements can we help forge equality.
Prof. Merike Blofield, our fantastic moderator from our 2021 Women in Leadership event, will lead a discussion after Ailsa’s talk, addressing the issues and policies that need changing to obtain gender equality.
U.S. Consul General Jason Chue will introduce Women’s History Month, whose origins can be traced to a national celebration declared by the U.S. Congress in 1981. Not just a day, but an entire month to celebrate the achievements of women.
The event will be held at the beautiful Speigelsaal at the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (MK&G) and end with a small reception with refreshments and a chance to talk.
This event will take place in English, is free, and guests are welcome. We encourage you to invite young people to join us as change only happens when everyone is involved in the conversation! (The talk is suitable for young teenagers and up.)
