“Celebrating Women’s History Month” will be a 90-minute presentation and dialogue on and celebrating the contributions of women throughout history. We will recognize the promotion of feminism and how it has evolved over time with discussion topics ranging from politics, science, art, and culture. Through a candid conversation highlighting women’s voices across time, we will highlight the impact of women in the industry and the contributions of women throughout the globe as well at the University of Michigan.
The experiences of minority women including but not limited to: Trans women, trans femme women, African American & Black women, Latinx & Pacific Islander women, Native American women, East Asian women, South Asian women, Central Asian women, and Middle Eastern women will be central to our workshop. Within our resident halls, we encourage the awareness and active condemnation of misogynistic stigmas. Thus, we will discuss not only women’s accomplishments but also the burdens they had to overcome, and how we can all be part of a future where these burdens are removed for all individuals who identify as women.
