Women's Week

Women’s Week takes place every year during the last week of March, National Women’s History Month.

And every year, the dynamic week is filled with lectures, discussions, film, music, and art that celebrate the achievements and experiences of women and explore contemporary social, political, and health issues.

Be sure to mark your calendar right now and watch for more information as the week grows near. Internships for planning and managing Women’s Week are available.
