Hartwick College will commemorate Women’s History Month through a series of events held across campus during the month of March. This year’s Women’s History Month theme is “Nevertheless, She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.”
“I am pleased that this annual celebration is being shaped by women in the Hartwick community, taking into consideration both domestic and international perspectives,” said Harry Bradshaw Matthews, associate dean and director of the Office of Intercultural Affairs.
The Women’s Center will offer a series of events titled “Focus on Women’s Experiences in Academia, Politics, and History,” starting on Friday, March 9. The series begins by looking at “Women in Literature,” and finishing with a program on the “#MeToo Movement” on Friday, March 23.
The Pluralism Associates League for Students (PALS), along with the Black Student Alliance (BSA), and Society of Sisters Unity/Brothers United (SOUSU/BU), will hold its second preparation session for students selected for the annual trip to the Harriet Tubman House in Auburn, NY this April.
Also this month is the annual Women’s History Month Awards and Reception. President Margaret L. Drugovich headlines this special event, which celebrates the contributions by women at Hartwick College.
The full schedule of events follows, and additional events may be scheduled. These are open to the public, unless otherwise noted, but advanced reservations may be required:
Also, throughout the month, Stevens-German Library in Yager Hall will feature a showcase of women’s literature.
