Women's History Month presence on a college campus  

When I graduate in May, I'm going to miss college moments like this. For Women's History month, there is a "Women and Social Movements" display in the library. Several glass cases hold photos and information on all different groups of women: feminists, queer women, Latina women, sex workers, and many many more. It is a beautiful representation of women's history. Here's a photo of the cases put together by two clubs I'm in: the Feminist Collective (right) and Take Back the Night (left):

(Thanks to Kay for the photo!)

What next?

    I'm a college student living on campus, and I really love seeing all the Women's History Month displays. My floor has bulletin boards dedicatd to women in the workforce, and my residence comples has workshops and activities that are dedicated to female empowerment. It's been a nice month, it's a shame it's almost over.

    I'm a college student living on campus as well, and I wish I saw more things about Women's History Month. I've seen one bulletin board but I feel like I've seen many more for "black history month" or other history months. I think it's really cool that we have months to celebrate and learn about certain minorities..yet if you think about it, it's kind of sad that we have to have months like this. Every day should be a day to celebrate everyone, not just men, women, blacks, or whites.
