International Women's Day 2019
On 8 March we join millions worldwide to celebrate the achievements of women. While battles like voting rights have been won, the day also acts as a reminder that change is still needed. Last year we released the critically acclaimed podcast To the Woman and for 2020 we have produced a second series with 20 inspiring women narrating their letters alongside host June Sarpong. Listen to these heart-felt stories, catch up with the first series if you missed it, and browse the selection of literature written by, and celebrating, women below.
