With this year's theme, "Testimonios: Celebrating Our Stories," Women's History Month provides diverse and interdisciplinary programming focused on the contributions of women as well as the ways in which gender informs our lives and society.
Women's History Month recognizes and celebrates women's contributions and causes by providing space for educational events from a feminist perspective, promoting a commitment to diversity, and aiming to achieve social justice and women's empowerment. Additionally, the events honor those who have worked for the betterment of those historically underrepresented.
