Celebrate female empowerment through educational and social events during Women’s History Month on the Missouri State University campus.
The events will run March 21-April 16. They will help the campus and larger community gain a better understanding of what women of all shapes and sizes go through and their value to society.
“Throughout history, women have played an invaluable role in shaping the United States,” said Nina Barudzic, MSU director of multicultural programs. “It’s crucial to continue showcasing the accomplishments of women who contributed to the society as we see today, as well as the ones who are yet to shape the future.”
