March is National Women's History Month. In 1987 the US Congress designated March as National Women's History Month. This creates a special opportunity in our schools, our workplaces, and our communities to recognize and celebrate the often-overlooked achievements of American women. Each year there is a special national theme. This year’s theme is NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women. As part of Women's History Month, the VWU Women's Resource Center will be screening films that feature strong female characters and storylines as part of their "Heroes & Badasses" Series. Each Tuesday, a different film will be shown in the Social Science Lab (111). Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the films start at 7:30 p.m. Snack and refreshments will be provided.
