Home A day without a woman

A day without a woman

If you visit the Main Library on Wednesday, March 8th, you might notice the Weber Reading Room looks a little different. In recognition of International Women’s Day and A Day Without a Woman, the libraries has organized this small collection to highlight the disparity in representation between male and female authors. All the books written by men have been placed backwards on the shelf, leaving only works written or co-written by women facing forward. This display is meant both to point out how few opportunities women authors face compared to their male counterparts, and also to recognize the efforts of those who have made their mark. Take a minute to explore the display, and note in which subject areas women are more or less represented. We hope that acknowledging this example of inequality can lead you to recognize and confront the prejudices that all marginalized groups face.

If you want to explore women’s literary, artistic, and scientific contributions, we encourage you to check out one of these books, or, if you want to celebrate women recognized in the classic literary canon, we’re featuring books written by women from TheGreatestBooks.org’s composite list of the 100 Greatest Novels on the book display next to the check-out desk.

If you have any difficulty finding a specific item in this collection while this arrangement is in place, just let library staff know and we’ll be happy to help you locate it.
