The Year of Women

Women's & Gender Studies is thrilled to be participating in the College's Year of Women celebration for the 2018-19 academic year. In April 2018, the College's Board of Trustees unanimously and enthusiastically declared via a resoltuion that the 2018-19 academic year would be the "Year of Women," honoring the centennial of (white) women's admission to the College while also "acknowleding all progress and continuing challenges associated with this centennial commemoration." The kick-off event for this celebration was our 6th annual Yes! I'm a Feminist event on September 7. Learn more about Yes! I'm a Feminist on our dedicated YIAF page.
