National Women's History Month
Mission Statement: MTSU's National Women's History Month programming recognizes, promotes, and celebrates women's contributions and causes by providing education and entertainment from a feminist perspective that emphasizes cultural transformation to achieve social justice and women's empowerment.
The National Women's History Month Committee coordinates programming each academic year, including an opening ceremony, keynote speaker, and featured presentations
Events are held throughout the year and announced through the NWHM calendar and flyers posted on campus, though the majority are held in March and announced via our annual NWHM Calendar. To receive a copy of the calendar, contact the June Anderson Center office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-898-5812.
"Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories", recognizing women, past and present, who
have been active in all forms of media and storytelling including print, radio, tv,
stage, screen, blogs, podcasts, news, and social media.
