TWR: @TheWomensRoomUK Launch

THE WOMEN'S ROOM celebrates their official launch! 

Historyworks is supporting TWR & the launch.  We recorded the speakers and made podcasts, we also captured the event with stills photography, and we've made an archive of the tweets via Storify.  See below to find links.  Please take the links and share the resources and encourage everyone you know to celebrate TWR to encourage more women to register their expertise and for the media to take on board the challenges from TWR about what it means to be 'expert' and to increase the media air time and utilize the expertise of women!
