The UCF community of faculty, students, and staff are joining together to celebrate women’s history month and to highlight women’s achievements and challenges to gender equity. The national women’s history month project began in the 1970’s; the U.S. Congress declared March as national women’s history month in 1987. This effort is intended to promote UCF traditions honoring women faculty, staff, and students, and encourage the entire campus to use March 2018 as a platform for recognizing and improving the lives of women affiliated with our campus.

 

The Office of Diversity and Inclusion intends to produce a poster for campus distribution that raises awareness of the month’s activities. International Women’s Day is March 8th. Equal Pay Day is April 10th. The 2018 national history month theme “recognizes the intersecting forms of discrimination women have faced, and continue to face, throughout American history and celebrates the diverse women who have fought, and continue to fight, discrimination at all level and in all forms.” Poster contributors this year can pick any visuals to convey the national women’s history month theme — #NEVERTHELESS SHE PERSISTED: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
