In celebration of women – both on the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh campus and in the greater community – the Gender Equity Council and the Women’s Center are hosting a variety of events throughout the month of March.
All events are free and open to the public.
- Wisconsin State Sen. Jessica King will be on campus March 14 for Recognizing Women: Women Shaping Politics. More event details can be found on the Gender Equity Counsel website.
- Author Stephanie Coontz will discuss her latest book A Strange Stirring: The Feminine Mystique and American Women at the Dawn of the 1960s in the Reeve Union Ballroom on March 15 at 5 p.m. She will also discuss the many changes that are taking place in modern American families and marriages and what the future may hold for today’s men and women.
- The UW Oshkosh Women’s Center will host a discussion March 13 at 6 p.m. as part of its Crucial Conversation series. Each month, a local women leader is invited to the Women’s Center to share her message. The event takes place the second Tuesday of every month. This month’s speaker is Jess Riley who has been a waitress, a blue cheese packager, and currently is a grant writer for nonprofits and schools.
Earlier this month, as part of the Women’s History Month activities, an International Women’s Day Symposium was also held.
Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to contribute calendar items, campus announcements and other good news to UW Oshkosh Today.
