Over the last decade, British Women Archaeologists have worked across all sectors in archaeology and heritage, advocating for women and equality in archaeology. In a profession and academic discipline, Archaeology has woeful statistics on the representation of women at higher levels of authority and distressing accounts of sexual harassment. With the evidence gained from our surveys and those of others, we have collaborated with newly formed groups such as the CIfA Equality and Diversity Special Interest Group and the British Archaeological Jobs and Resources RESPECT campaign. Our activism has been influential with national bodies such as the Theoretical Archaeology Group and The Prehistoric Society, particularly since the global #MeToo movement, and means we now have a suite of tools and insights into how we can best improve our profession to be equal and inclusive. We believe that universities have an important role to play in this sorely needed culture change, and we’d like to share our work with you.
