Women’s History Month


Get ready. Women’s history month really isn’t that far away. And this year, at the University of Akron, the Women’s Studies Program has great programs in store.

Catie Curtis

The month will be kicked off with folk singer Catie Curtis. The “out” Boston folk singer is known for her songs about homelessness, social problems and her life. She will perform at E.J. Thomas at the Stage Door at 7 p.m. on March 2.  Special thanks to the Gay Endowment Fund and E.J. for their support of the program.

Lilly Ledbetter

There is already a lot of excitement about the fact that Lily Ledbetter will be at the University on March 10.  See Paula Maggio’s post to learn more about this incredible woman and her journey to change America.

New York poet and performer Staceyann Chin will perform on March 31 in the Student Union Theatre at 7 p.m. The event will close out Women’s History month and be part of the kickoff for the Graduate CROW conference at the University.   Earlier in the day, activist Kathy Kelley will speak in the theatre.
