You Can Be Part of Women’s HERstory Month

« Back  |  

For many women across the globe, March means much more than the beginning of spring. Women’s History Month, observed annually in March in the U.S. since 1987, is a time to celebrate the contributions, achievements, and discoveries women have made to history and culture. Women do represent 49.6 percent of the world’s population, after all.

Arizona State University is proud to celebrate Women’s HERstory Month to increase the visibility of all women and women-identified peoples in our community. There are many activities planned throughout the month that not only celebrate women, but highlight important issues impacting our world–on campus and beyond.
