Celebrate Women's History Month with Pacific University

Women's History Month provides an opportunity for us to reflect on the time, physical labor, and emotional labor women have historically contributed to advance opportunities for people of all genders.
 
The Center for Gender Equity (CGE) encourages our students, in the words of feminist author Adrienne Rich, to "Claim their Education" by actively participating in creating a better and more equitable future for themselves, and for the next generation.
 
The CGE is honored to continue the important work of dismantling oppression through education, activism, and support guided by the ideals of feminist activist and academic bell hooks: "The classroom remains the most radical space of possibility in the academy — education is about the practice of freedom." 
 
Additionally, this year we are celebrating the 50th year of Title IX, the amendment that protects people of all genders from discrimination based on their sex. Please consider attending one of CGE's highlighted events this month or visiting the Tran Library display featuring women activists from a broad spectrum of racial and sexual identities.
