Routledge Reference celebrate International Women’s Day – take a look at our feminism titles!

8th March 2013 marks International Women’s Day. This global event celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

Every year, thousands of events are held across the world to inspire women and celebrate their achievements. Women from all over the world are connected through a diverse range of events, including political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events, as well as local activities such as women’s craft markets, theatrical performances, fashion parades and more!

In places like China, Russia, Vietnam and Bulgaria, International Women’s Day is a national vacation. The first International Women’s Day in 1911 was introduced as part of the campaign for women’s right to vote. Today, International Women’s Day honours the work of the Suffragettes, celebrates women’s successes and looks to address some of the inequalities that still exist around the world.

In 2013, Routledge Reference is adding to our already rich backlist of titles in the Major Works History of Feminism series.

The new collections publishing this year are introduced and edited by experts in the field, providing users with easy to access material that has previously been inaccessible or scattered across specialist books and journals.

Forthcoming titles from the History of Feminism series include the titles Girls’ School Stories, 1749 -1929 and Women, Beauty and Fashion.

Previous collections from this series have included works on female journalists, travel writing, cross dressing, suffrage and nineteenth-century education.

Our Routledge Library Editions program reissues books from the Routledge past. Collections are facsimile copies of books which have previously been published by any of the number of imprints associated with Routledge. Recent Routledge Library Editions include Feminist Theory, Women’s History and Women, Feminism and Literature.

These recent and upcoming publications from Routledge Reference span all aspects of women’s literature, gender and feminism through literary criticism and the work of women literary theorists.
