Already representing 60 percent of students on campus, women will gain even more prominence in March. The women’s and gender studies program is coordinating these events in celebration of Women’s History Month. “Given the huge amount of debate and discussion about women, particularly in regards to women’s healthcare decisions, I find this opportunity to be especially important,” said Mandy Gallagher, women’s and gender studies program coordinator and assistant professor of communications. The events will include panels, digital displays in Moseley that will feature important women and a documentary screening that will include a discussion about the prominent women in history and their effect on society today. “This is a time for us to reflect on the historical accomplishments of women before us to further explore where we would like to see women go in the future,” Gallagher said.
