Women's History Month events begin
Inspirational ladies showcased in annual celebration
The Multicultural Center is preparing for Women’s History Month, which will celebrate and educate students about several women throughout history, their accomplishments and contributions to society.
"I appreciate that this isn’t really a man’s world anymore," Robyn Simkins junior said. "There are still issues, but we’re moving up in the world and influencing groups to make sure our daughters can grow up in a world they’re proud to live in."
The celebration will consist of several events that will showcase women of ASU and women around the world. One of the events will center on the women of ASU and what they have accomplished through the university and outside of school.
Women who have achieved academic and research awards will be celebrated on March 30, and they will share their accomplishments with other students. The event is called Outstanding Women of ASU.
"On March 8, we’ll be collaborating with the Girl Scouts and holding an event on campus," Selene Corcino, student organizations manager graduate assistant, said. "We’ll also have several international students and women from ASU discussing the issues in their home country and offering food from their country."
Events for Women’s History Month will take place on campus and cover the history of the advocacy of women’s rights and the important figures in women’s history.
"I feel it’s important that women get to be celebrated," Corcino said. "Women who make history inspire other women, and it’s important that we teach the next generation about the various women who paved the way for us so someday, they can do the same."
Students attend these celebratory events because they relate and want to know more about the topics being discussed.
"I will most likely attend women of ASU day," Simkins said. "Since I am going to school here, I am curious to learn about the impact alumni has had on our community and what they gained from going to school here."
Many educational celebrations are organized by the Multicultural Center and provide insight into different people’s contributions society as well as celebrate ASU’s own student body.
"I think every major breakthrough in American history deserves to be acknowledged and celebrated," Simkins said. "The event is aimed at female students because we can relate most with Women’s History Month, but everyone can learn and enjoy events like this. It gives people the chance to grow."
