Featured News | March 12, 2018

The month of March is designated as National Women's History Month.  During this month, the Women's Resource Center at Virginia Wesleyan University (VWU) has organized a series of special events—with support from several student groups, the VWU Theatre Department, and the Virginia Beach Chapter of the American Association of University Women.

“The array of events for Women's History Month not only shows the diverse issues that women faced in the past, but also raise awareness about the accomplishments, as well as the challenges, that many women face in today's world, both domestically and internationally," says Jennifer Slivka, VWU Director of the Women's Resource Center and Assistant Professor of English. "The discussions arising out of these events are important for both women and men as we move toward gender equality in our society."   

VWU is proud to celebrate the vital contributions of women throughout history and in our contemporary society.
