Join Brandeis University's Center for German and European Studies for a celebration of women’s history month with two German authors who have done a lot to bring attention to women’s history. How does one change the narrative about the past so it becomes inclusive of many different experiences? What lessons does women’s history teach us about women’s struggles, resilience, and achievements? How does a deeper look at women’s history change our understanding of history altogether?
