On behalf of numerous co-sponsoring organizations, the SAGE Center is proud to announce the following series of events to celebrate Women's History Month. This celebration was first ordained by presidential proclamation as Women's History Week in 1980, and expanded to the full month of March in 1988. The National Women's History Project provides an annual theme, and this year the theme is "Weaving the Stories of Women's Lives." We hope you plan to support one or more of these events and take time to consider how integral the many threads of womens' influence have been in your own life's tapestry.

This powerful documentary digs into how women are represented in the media and positions of power. A discussion guided by professors Mary Beth Ray and Diane Hotten-Somers will follow.
