Celebrating Women's Rights During Women's History Month

Pacific University salutes the trailblazers, who have paved the way for women’s rights, as well as the women who continue to pursue equality worldwide during Women’s History Month in March 2021.

International Women's Day is March 8 — a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women since 1911. Women’s History Month has been  recognized in the U.S. since 1987.

Womens' Health MonthThe Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and The Student Multicultural Center, in partnership with other Pacific University centers, are proud to offer a variety of events for all to participate in during Women’s History Month — from a casual bike daytrip to explore Forest Grove and inspiring discussions to a play about union organizer Dolores Huerta and performances from students, faculty and staff.

Kick off Women’s History Month with a month-long social media challenge from the Center for Gender Equity. Tell herstory during Womxn Herstory Month! The spelling of womxn is meant to show inclusion of trans, nonbinary, womxn of color, womxn with disabilities and all other marginalized genders, and herstory is history presented from a feminist viewpoint or with the experience of women. Use the hashtag #intentionalwomxn along with #CGE #SMC #pacificuniversity when uploading content to social media and participants will be entered to win prizes. Post as often as you’d like!

Calling all performers! Performing Boundless & Unbound will showcase poetry, music and other forms of creative expression performed by students, faculty & staff. Register for a time slot by March 3 if you’re interested in this open mic event. The performance will take place via Zoom on Wednesday, March 10 at 6 p.m. and is sponsored by Ximena Keogh Serranoa, World Languages & Literature professor and the SMC
