2018 National Women’s History Month Calendar @ MTSU and some little history

MTSU welcomes everybody to assist to a variety of events prepared for women’s empowerment during women’s history month ( begins 03/01/18)

MTSU’s National Women’s History Month programming recognizes, promotes, and celebrates women’s contributions and causes by providing education and entertainment from a feminist perspective that emphasizes cultural transformation to achieve social justice and women’s empowerment.

Women’s History Month originated after the will of the U.S. National Archives to recognize the outstanding contributions that women made to the nation along history. This year MTSU has the distinction to celebrate the 19th amendment, which ratifies the women’s right to vote along the U.S. territory.  A series of events are going to take place @ MTSU campus including: A love your body week, gender evolution talks, and the keynote speaker Selenis Leyva, winner of the Cosmo of the year Latina’s women’s award in 2015, and star of the Netflix Series “Orange is the New Black.”
