Inspiring women

Podcasts are helping us all sit up and take notice of females who have made their mark on history.

Looking for something new to listen to, or wanting to delve into the world of podcasts for the first time?

In honour of Women’s History Month, why not be inspired by some of the stories of females throughout the decades.

Women’s History Month runs from March 1 to 31. It highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society, corresponding with International Women’s Day marked last Friday.

There are so many extraordinary women in Australia and overseas who have contributed and continue to contribute to our history in various and meaningful ways.

Here are a few female-focused episodes or podcasts to check out this month. The following are all available on Spotify, or your favourite podcast streaming service.
