Digital resources for Women’s History Month from Templeman Library
Student Services, Information Services and Kent Union have created a virtual reading list for students and staff who want to feed their literary curiosity and discover new books and resources outside of their academic studies. This reading list links with Women’s History Month 2020, features over 30 titles, classic and modern, fiction and non-fiction, from all over the world! They explore and celebrate achievements and challenges through experiences of power both historically and in the world today.
