Women's History Month

On-Going Annual Events

Her-Story Celebration: For each day during the month of March, subscribers to the Her-Story Project Listserv will receive an essay (500 words), character sketch, photo journal, or poem submitted by one of the members of the listserv, contemplating the women or aspects of womanhood that have had an important impact upon, or been a source of inspiration for, the writer. Our celebration is unique in that each day’s tribute is composed by an RU student, staff, administrator or faculty member.

Circle of Life / Intergenerational Dialogue: On Wednesdays during March, an inner-circle of women from one generation will speak to an outer circle of participants from other generations about their life experiences and what it is like to be a woman in a particular age group. Open to all members of the RU community.

Paradigm Shift: a concert celebrating Women’s History Month, features original creative dance works by emerging female choreographers from the RU Department of Dance.

The Vagina Monologues: Guest director Lucinda McDermott-Piro will direct students, faculty and community members in three performances of Eve Ensler’s powerful monologues calling for an end to violence against women and children. The Women’s Studies Club has raised thousands of dollars for the Women’s Resource Center in conjunction with these performances. This year's performance is RU's sixth.
