To mark International Women's Day and Women's History Month the History Carnival is inaugurating a special Women's History Carnival for March 2011, for all blogs and blogging about the history of women, gender and feminism. We don't know exactly what's going to happen yet, but hopefully it'll be a bit different from the usual History Carnivals.
There'll be at least one Carnival post, but we'd like to do much more than that! We'll publicise any great blogging or themed events we come across (or you tell us about) and generally do our best to encourage discussion and bang the drum for women's history.
If you'd like to get involved, or if you're blogging something for Women's History Month that you'd like us to publicise, leave a comment here, use the contact form, or just send a tweet @historycarnival.
Depending on nominations, it's likely that there will be a Carnival posting (venue tbc) shortly after International Women's Day, with a follow-up towards the end of March to round up the month's activities. You can nominate blog posts for the Carnival using this special nominations form. (Don't use the normal HC nomination form.) Although recent material may be given priority, anything written since March 2010 will be considered!
