Celebrating Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day at SXSW EDU 2023

Women’s contributions throughout history have been vital but not always recognized. So in 1987, Congress passed Public Law 100-9, officially designating the entire month of March as “Women’s History Month.”

This year, we are proud to host women from all over the world on the SXSW EDU stage for International Women’s Day on March 8, 2023. Be sure to join our International Women’s Day celebration, Women That Flex: Celebrating Women Leaders with Far Reaching Impact, presented by The Female Quotient & Direct Digital Holdings, which will shine a light on women's achievements and ideas across the education landscape.

Throughout the event, we hope to support this year’s International Women’s Day theme and embrace equity. Explore a selection of 2023 programming focused on closing the gap between gender inequity, and see more in the full schedule:
