Mason Celebrates Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month has been a hallmark of the work of the Women and Gender Studies Center since 1990, and as we often say, our busiest time of the year.

We have celebrated in many different ways over the years through the inclusion of the Sojourner Truth Lecture, film screenings, panel discussions, guest speakers, and open mic nights. This year our theme is Healing from 2020: Why Gender Matters. This year, we will focus on how COVID-19 and our national conversations on anti-racist efforts affect gender through a Kahoot tournament, multiple panel discussions, open mic night, and a discussion and workshop about Gender, Class, and Fatphobia. Some of our collaborators this year are University Life at Sci-Tech, African and African American Studies, and the School of Integrative Studies. Our program adviser team is responsible for coordinating these events and we are proud of their work this year. A big shout out to Angelica Lovelace, Nautia Smalls, and Victoria Westermeyer!
