Women's History Month.


Since 1987, March has marked Women’s History Month. In 2018, Royal Holloway SU takes this opportunity to join in with the celebrations and commemorations in line with this year’s theme – ‘Nevertheless She Persisted’.  

The theme brings about a sense of… well, persistence. It’s the idea of success in the face of constant adversity, that despite every trial and barrier, that women have pushed themselves through such difficulties and raised themselves to excellence regardless.
