The Women’s Classical Committee was founded in 2015 in the United Kingdom with the following aims:

*By ‘women’ we include all those who self-define as women, including (if they wish) those with complex gender identities which include ‘woman’, and those who experience oppression as women.

** By ‘classics’ we understand the study of the ancient Mediterranean world and its reception, including but not limited to scholarship by students and post-holders in academic departments of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology.

People of any gender expression or identity who support these aims are welcome to attend events, become members and to put themselves forward for office.

We seek to achieve these aims by working independently and with other organisations.  Our activities include:
