Thomas Hall at 7:30 p.m. They will end March 31 with an appearance by New York poet and performer Staceyann Chin at 7 p.m. in the Student Union Theatre. Chin’s appearance is co-sponsored by Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority.
In between those two events, Lilly Ledbetter, the voice of pay equity, will speak at the
Student Union Theatre at 7 p.m. March 10.
Events sponsored by other university organizations — from the Women Trailblazers Panel on March 4 to the Third Biannual Graduate Gender Symposium March 31 and April 1 — are scheduled throughout the month as well.
