Celebrating women in higher education - Bluestocking Week (14-18 August)

Happy Bluestocking Week!
RMIT University Library supports women's inclusion and participation in all aspects of higher education and celebrates women's achievements in academia.
The first generations of women university students were called 'bluestockings' and Bluestocking Week is celebrated across our universities to reflect on the generations of women university students who paved the way for women in higher education today.
Discover more about the history of women in higher education and Bluestocking week at RMIT University Library. 

Please join us for the Bluestocking Week celebration at the RMIT Bundoora campus on 16 August, Celebrating Women in STEMM.
