Women's History Month

Women's History Month takes place every March. The Center for Women's and Gender Equity hosts intersectional programs, events, and campaigns to recognize the complete narrative of Women's Rights History. Additionally, through education, collaboration, and awareness the CWGE centralizes marginalized voices of our history and contemporary moment. Our goal is to share the whole narrative as opposed to the commonly celebrated privileged narrative of women's history. 

Below are a series of posters from our 2018 celebration of Women's History Month that highlight women in Colorado's history.

This year the Center for Women's and Gender Equity is celebrating its 25th Anniversary. We are grateful to reach back into history to pay homage to the phenomenal women who have paved this path. We are excited to reflect on the present and honor the work that continues to be done, the struggles we have encountered, and the success we have accomplished. We are optimistic as we look to the future and embrace others along this path with us, continuing the movement towards gender justice and feminism, in our campus, in our communities, and in our world.
