Celebrating Women in Heritage

Each year on March 8th, International Women's Day applauds the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women around the world. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

To celebrate, we asked seven women who partner with us as architects, conservators, and advocates at sites around the world to tell us about their work and why empowering women in the field of heritage preservation is so important.
