Women's Herstory Month


What Is Women's Herstory Month?

Women of the Mexican RevolutionFamous image of women of the Mexican Revolution.  As historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich said, "well-behaved women seldom make history."

It is a celebration of women's achievements as leaders and forces of change throughout history!

Why Celebrate Women's History?

The National Women's History Project explains that "History helps us learn who we are, but when we don't know our own history, our power and dreams are immediately diminished." Women's History Month projects aim to write women's achievements back into history (national history, international history, campus history) and into our everyday consciousness.

Who Is Involved?

An eclectic group of students, staff and faculty, under the auspices of the Women's Resource Center, annually organize a month of events and activities to take place throughout March. We welcome you to participate as an individual or as an organization or department. Everyone on campus can and should participate—students, faculty, staff and community members!
