Women's History Month


March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate the women who have made and changed our world.

Buckinghamshire Libraries have a wide range of books to help you explore the impact of women across the globe, from Ancient Egypt to modern times, from the lives of the great and the good to the lives of the overlooked and the rebels and renegades.

Discover the adventures of Maud West, private detective; learn about the “Bright Sparks” and their inventions or read about the lives of female slaves in the plantations.
