Campus organizations and departments join efforts to celebrate March as National Women’s History Month.

This year’s theme, "Women Change America," honors and recognizes the role of American women in transforming culture, history and politics as leaders, writers, scientists, educators, politicians, artists, historians, and informed citizens.

“ The importance of the month is to honor all women and the struggles we have endured to get as far as we’ve gotten,” said Leslie Burk, secretary of the TTU Women’s Center.

The Center's mission includes coordinating and collaborating with other functional areas of the University to provide a range of services that will enhance the lives of women within the university community and within the larger society.

International Women’s Day is March 8, and there will be a showcase on the first floor of the Roaden University Center the 21-25.

The Women’s Center and the Black Cultural Center will present the film, “Standing on My Sisters’ Shoulders,” at 11:00 a.m., March 22, in the RUC, Room 258. The film is said to be “a classic portrait of the women who risked their lives to achieve Civil Rights for all.”
