Women's Wednesdays presents "Women in Bahamian History"

"Knowledge about the past is key to understanding where we are now and why. We need this information to create the feminist world/ future we need. What work have Bahamian women already done, and how did they do it? Is it included in the written accounts of history? What can we learn from the work of Bahamian women in the past? How do we ensure that the work we are doing now is recorded and shared for the benefit of those who come after us? We will be joined by local historians and storytellers who will add their thoughts to the discussion. See you there!

Women's Wednesdays was founded by Equality Bahamas as a response to community members' requests for a space to access resources, experts, and practitioners, share knowledge, and engage in conversation with one another. Officially started in May 2017, Women's Wednesdays highlights Bahamian women and our experiences in The Bahamas, specific to our identities including gender, race, sexuality, age, and ability. Held once per month at minimum, the events draw women together to have conversations that bring our individual lives into focus while connecting to family, community, and national narratives.

#WW242 intentionally centers and prioritizes women and girls, and is open to the public through in-person events, livestreams, and social media activity. With the support of the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas, we create a safe space for knowledge-building, idea-sharing, critical dialogue, and movement-building.

Inspired by Equality Bahamas' Women's Wednesdays, there is now a similar initiative in Guyana, and other countries in the Caribbean are expected to follow."
