Event Time and Date

Wednesday, March 1 2017, 8:00 AM to Friday, March 31 2017, 5:00 PM

This March, we will gather as a community for our yearly celebration of Women's Month at Virginia Tech.  Our theme for Women's Month 2017 is Empowerment & Unity: Collective Voices in Action.  We are inspired by the solidarity, community, and power created when our collective voices are in action toward creating a more just and equitable world through acknowledging the historic and current contributions of women in our community and beyond.

You can find the full calendar of events at: http://womenscenter.vt.edu/Program/womens-month.html

Women’s Month recognizes, affirms, and showcases the achievements, concerns, and diversity of women. A feminist perspective – one that encourages and advances women of all races, political affiliations, national origins, religions, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and income levels – underlies all our programming. Women’s Month is an annual event occurring in March, National Women’s History Month. 

Women’s Month is a non-profit community project funded by Virginia Tech, area organizations, student groups, local businesses, and citizens’ contributions.  It is the combined effort of students, faculty, staff, and administrators at Virginia Tech as well as activists, residents, and civic leaders of the surrounding communities.

For additional information regarding Women’s Month, please contact Mallory Foutch, Women’s Month Coordinator.
