All March at MSU!

Women*s History Month is observed annually every March. At MSU, many departments, campus groups, and student organizations have created events to showcase during the month of March. In our use of “women” we recognize that gender is complex. We are all more than just our gender - we are comprised of myriad intersecting identities, each grounded in social context, history, and our lived experiences. We look forward to you joining us at any of the events linked in the calendar!
