Women's History Month
The 2019 UCF Women’s History Month reflects the theme established by the National Women’s History Month Project: Visionary Women: Who Inspires You?
The national theme for 2019 honors women who have led efforts to end war, violence, and injustice and pioneered the use of nonviolence to change society. These Honorees embraced the fact that the means determine the ends and so developed nonviolent methods to ensure just and peaceful results.. Read More.
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 2019 as a platform for recognizing and improving the lives of women affiliated with our campus.

Equal Pay Day
Equal Pay Day is the symbolic day dedicated to raising awareness of the gender pay gap. This date symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year, the exact day differs both by year and by country. Women of Color typically face far greater odds in reaching pay equal to men’s pay.
2018 – April 10th – several opportunities to participate and learn more. Wear Red to support all women!
