Monday 8 March is International Women’s Day, and we’d like your help to celebrate!
Next week we’re inviting you to name a woman or women who have inspired you geographically and tell us why! Simply post the name of a woman or women, tag their @handle if possible, and post on Twitter using the hashtag #IWDgeographers between Monday 8 and Friday 12 March. You can even take a photo of yourself or record a short video about your inspirational woman, and we’ll retweet them on Monday 8 March and throughout the rest of the week.
Is there a teacher in your school or a lecturer at university who has influenced you? Has a family member, friend or colleague unlocked your geographical curiosity? From trailblazing early geographers through to contemporary mentors and role models, we’d love to hear all your contributions! And, at the end of the week, we’ll gather your responses and share them, highlighting as many women as we can who work to encourage, inspire and support geography and geographical learning.
Follow #IWDgeographers and #IWD2021 to see who else has been geographically inspired on International Women’s Day.
The Society is grateful to the Gender and Feminist Geographies Research Group who provided the inspiration behind this year’s International Women’s Day campaign. Their ‘100+’ project, created and displayed at the 2013 Annual International Conference, celebrated the centenary of women’s permanent membership of the Society and formed the basis of our plans.
This week is International Geomorphology Week, with the aim of promoting geomorphology in all its forms and mobilising the international community of geomorphologists to share their work and expertise.
We are excited to announce this year’s line-up for Geographical journeys: microlectures. Join us for an evening packed full of tales to inspire, as eight speakers have just 10 minutes each to share their geographical journeys in an illustrated talk.
Throughout February, we have been sharing resources via our social media that highlight the geographies of LGBTQ+ groups, increase their visibility and better understand their history and experiences.
The Society is home to a remarkable collection of original photographic glass and celluloid negatives captured by Frank Hurley, the official photographer of the 1914-1917 Endurance expedition.
