Each year on March 8th, International Women’s Day (or on the nearest week day), the Centre for Gender Studies in Wales presents a public lecture, the Ursula Masson Memorial Lecture, to celebrate the day and to commemorate its founder.
Dr Ursula Masson (1945-2008) was a much loved and highly esteemed
senior lecturer in History at Glamorgan. She was also instrumental in
founding Archif Menywod Cymru/Women’s Archive of Wales and its roadshows.
It is fitting, therefore, that the Memorial Lecture is given in her honour on International Women’s Day.
