This celebration, designated by Joint Resolutions of the House and Senate and Proclamations by five American Presidents, is an opportunity to honor and celebrate women’s historic achievements. Each year National Women’s History Month employs a unifying theme and recognizes national honorees whose work and lives testify to that theme.
The Women’s and Gender Studies Honor Society Triota, partnering with the Women’s & Gender Studies Program and the Student Engagement and Leadership Center, invite you to participate in the 6th Annual Women’s History Month Conference on April 6th and 7th, 2016 to be hosted at the Student Union East Building at UTEP.
The Women’s History Month Conference is a venue for dialogue about women’s issues and activism through scholarly work. The purpose of this conference is to address and contemplate the “herstory” of women inside and outside of academia. We have invited activists, scholars, and artists in all fields to present panels, papers, and workshops.
