Women's History Month
March is Women's History Month and serves as a nationally recognized period to celebrate the accomplishments, contributions, and histories of women. For more information about the legislative origins of Women's History Month, see the Women's History Month page at the Law Library of Congress and the Women's History Month page put together by the Library of Congress. International Women's Day also occurs early in March each year, prompting individuals to women's experiences in a global context.
The Women's Studies Program, in association with multiple departments on campus, puts together a series of events in March. Every other year, the Women's Studies Symposium serves as a key event for Women's History Month; additional events include community lectures, film showings, and service events.
2013 Women's History Month planning is underway!
The 2013 Women's Studies Symposium will take place in March to start off Women's History Month—watch the 2013 Symposium webpage for updates on this important event. If you have ideas for additional Women's History Month events or if your department is planning an event and would like to collaborate with the Women's Studies Program, please contact Dr. Marie Drews (firstname.lastname@example.org).
