Women’s History Month

Emory & Henry Celebrates Women’s History Month!

Women’s History Month is an annual celebration of the unsung contributions, hardships and societal impacts made by women throughout history that began in 1987. Rev. Sharon Bowers, Special advisor to the President, Religious and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Initiatives, is leading Emory & Henry into Women’s History Month with radio shows, Zoom panels, historical seminars, and inclusivity training sessions.

Women’s History Month events will happen across campus beginning Wednesday, March 2 with “She Walks: Women & Leadership Radio Show” and the “Women Matters!” mixer for female faculty and staff hosted by Rev. Bowers in the McGlothlin Center for the Arts in the Copenhaver Lobby at 7 p.m. to kick off the month’s events.

“March is the special time of the year designated to uplift the immeasurable contributions that women have made throughout the world. It is an opportunity for us to make our world a more inclusive space,” said Rev. Bowers. “In the words attributed to Sojourner Truth, ‘If it is not a fit place for women, it is unfit for men to be there.’ We are all victims of a patriarchal society and we must do everything we can to deconstruct oppressive systems of injustice. Let’s celebrate women and all their efforts to make our world a better place. Women Matter!”
