Women’s History Month 2018

Women's History Month 2018

It’s March and that means the Office of Women and Gender Resources is celebrating Women’s History Month! We will be highlighting an amazing line-up of programs and events. This year’s theme is “Free Your Mind of Sexism”. The theme allows us to unpack a host of topics that puts the diverse experiences and celebrations of women front and center. We are excited, as always, to be collaborating with student organizations and departments from all over campus.
