Lancaster University’s Women’s+ Forum promotes events for Women’s History Month

The theme for 2022 is ‘Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope’

March is Women’s History Month, a celebration on the contributions to history, culture and society by women around the world. The month remembers historical events such as the Suffragette Movements and Civil Rights Movement, while teaching about the renowned female authors, scientists and other notable women who made history and paved the way for us to be able to work and gain higher education.

Lancaster University’s Womens+ Forum have announced a range of events for the month to mark Women’s History Month. Open to all Women+ staff and students.

Banner and poster making

Tuesday March 1st is Banner and Poster making for “Reclaim the Night” from 7-9 pm in Fylde Common Room. Materials will be provided for this event.

Welfare Wilderness Walk sessions

Wednesday March 2nd and Wednesday March 18th are their Welfare Wilderness Walk sessions. Take a stroll on the 2.6 mile Woodland Walk and get to chat with new people. Meeting outside the LICA Building at 1 pm, this is a great way to get your steps in and be around an exec full of lovely, like-minded people. Grab some sensible shoes for the walk (it can be a muddy nightmare) and enjoy a guided woodland walk.
