It's International Women's Day!

Life at LLW

Today people across the world will take time to celebrate International Women’s Day. 

This is a day to recognise the incredible contributions of women in various fields, including social sciences.

Throughout history, women have faced numerous obstacles in pursuing equality, including discrimination, violence, and social and cultural biases. Yet, despite these challenges, women have made significant contributions to the field of social sciences, including anthropology, sociology, psychology, and political science.

For example, a cultural anthropologist, Margaret Mead, significantly contributed to our understanding of human behaviour and culture. Her groundbreaking research challenged traditional gender roles and highlighted the importance of cultural diversity.

Harriet Martineau, a British social theorist, was one of the first sociologists to study the relationship between social structures and individual behaviour.

On this International Women’s Day, let us celebrate the achievements of these women and countless others who have made significant contributions to the field of social sciences and to our lives.

Finally, as we celebrate the achievements of women, let us continue to work towards a world where everyone, regardless of their gender, is empowered to make a difference.

Lives Lived Well is fortunate to have so many dedicated, compassionate and talented women in our workforce. They show up and share, and they leave a positive wake. Thank you!
