At the Chartered Institute for Archaeologists Conference 2015, in a brilliant and inspirational session about glass ceilings and the lack of gender equality in Archaeology and Heritage, participants agreed that something needed to be done to highlight the everyday sexism inherent in the sector. We therefore take inspiration from The Everyday Sexism Project and have created this site to share Tweets using the hashtag #everyDIGsexism.
Afterwards, on Twitter, it was suggested that we also needed to share inspiration too, so these are shared with the hashtag #ArchSwan which references the inspirational work of the Equality Challenge Unit and the Athena Swan scheme.
We are always on the look out for:
- More tweets (either horrifically sexist or fabulously inspiring)
- More examples of where archaeologists can go to seek further information on sexism, receive guidance, or generally read up on issues raised through this project
- Blog posts and articles for a hopeful guest blog page
If you can help with the above, please get in touch with us.
