March is Women’s Month!
Women’s Month recognizes, affirms, and showcases the achievements, concerns, and diversity of women. A feminist perspective – one that encourages and advances women of all races, political affiliations, national origins, religions, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and income levels – underlies all our programming. Women’s Month is an annual event occurring in March, National Women’s History Month.
Women’s Month is a non-profit community project funded by Virginia Tech, area organizations, student groups, local businesses, and citizens’ contributions. It is the combined effort of students, faculty, staff, and administrators at Virginia Tech as well as activists, residents, and civic leaders of the surrounding communities.
Virginia Tech’s Women's Month programming is a university-wide series of events designed to recognize the accomplishments, concerns, and diversity of women's lives. Events should be open to all who wish to participate and should offer opportunities to celebrate, as well as explore women's issues. Women's Month addresses the achievements of women and female-identified individuals, as well as the challenges they face. Women's Month also gives us the opportunity to examine the ways in which we think about others and ourselves. Programs and events included on the Women's Month calendar should be aligned with this philosophy.
