On March 8th, 2016 countries around the world will celebrate International Women’s Day. First celebrated in 1909 in New York, this event has become a worldwide event with annual themes such as: “women in decision-making”, “women uniting for peace”, “equality for women is progress for all”, etc. To spread knowledge on the gender inequality in access to education, this year’s campaign theme is #PledgeForParity.
To celebrate women in the legal field, here is a list of resources in our library about equality, feminism, and diversity in law. Stay tuned this week for another post on the history of women’s rights.
