March is Women’s History Month and we are excited to be able recognise and celebrate women’s contributions to all aspects of society throughout history up to the present day. Before its introduction by Sonoma School District in 1978, women’s history was rarely taught in schools but now a wide range of resources make teaching about such an important topic easier than ever before.

One of the most exciting things about boclips is the depth and breadth of the video content. A historical archive video allows students to witness a Suffragette rally in the early 20th century, whilst an international news producer provides up to the minute information on how women’s rights issues are developing across the globe now. Meanwhile, specialist documentary shorts tell the story of women working in engineering, marine biology, journalism and so many other fields.
