‘Women’s Print HERstory Month’ coincides with Women’s History Month to align the telling of stories that empower and inspire the fierce fabulous females of print, as well as young women and students entering the industry or considering print as a career.
Launched in 2019 by GirlsWhoPrint.net, Women’s Print HERstory Month returns in March, and Girls Who Print is mobilising the women in the industry, calling on them to join in and share their career and success stories through social media using the hashtag #PrintHERstoryMonth.
This mission is also a call to action to global businesses across all segments of the print industry to put the female leaders who manage teams, develop technology, and shatter sales targets in the limelight, and share the incredible achievements of women in print with the world.
There are no limitations when it comes to how to engage with Women’s Print HERstory Month.
Participants are encouraged to create or share content that celebrates women in the industry and send it out through social media using the hashtag #PrintHERstoryMonth.
Girls Who Print girl #1 Deborah Corn said print shops can set examples for their communities, and especially for workforce development, by participating in #PrintHERstoryMonth.
“Women’s Print HERstory Month has never been more important. The pandemic is disproportionately removing women from the global workforce and staying visible, celebrating our presence and successes loudly in a male-dominated field, is up to us,” she said.
“Everyone can show their support by following the #PrintHERstoryMonth hashtag stream and engaging with the content. A ‘like’ or a reshare or a retweet is an acknowledgement that the achievements of women in print matter.”
GirlsWhoPrint.net has also created a library of Q&A blog posts with community members, and Podcasts From The Printerverse has a Girls Who Print podcast series, which can be shared.
