WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH CONTINUES THIS WEEK
Old Dominion University's observance of National Women's History Month continues Friday, March 25, and on into the following week with a variety of free presentations sponsored by the ODU Women's Center. This year's theme is "Women Change America."
"Feminists Are Funny," a program scheduled for 6 p.m. March 25 in the North Cafeteria of Webb Center, promises "a funny and energetic romp through the Guerrilla Girls' 'herstory,' an up-to-date account of their latest actions in politics, theatre, media and the entertainment industry on the current cultural trends for women and artists of color. " The program will feature a comedy-club atmosphere with free food and beverages.
On Monday, March 28, the ODU Speech Chorus will take a light-hearted look at romantic relations in their production of "It Takes Two." It is scheduled for noon in the Cape Charles Room of Webb Center.
A Feminist Activist Fair and Non-Violence Fashion Show will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 29, in the North Mall of Webb Center. Participants can learn about opportunities for volunteering and employment in local and national organizations that focus on the needs of girls and women.
At noon on Wednesday, March 30, Pat Hyer, associate provost at Virginia Tech, will give a talk on "Empowering Women and Institutional Change on College Campuses" in the River Rooms of Webb Center. Her appearance is co-sponsored by the University Women's Caucus.
