MARCH 4, 2022 — In its continued commitment to inclusive excellence, UTSA is hosting a month-long celebration in honor of Women’s History Month throughout March.
Mirroring the national Women’s History Month theme of “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,” events will feature a speaker series and performances by poets, authors, scholars and community leaders.
“This year’s theme honors the important role women have played in the current public health crisis, such as helping manage some of the shifts in labor and by serving as caregivers,” said Sonya Alemán is an associate professor in the UTSA College of Education and Human Development’s Department of Race, Ethnicity, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (REGSS) and director of the UTSA Women’s Studies Institute. “It’s a nod to recognizing the current moment, as well as all the ways women have provided healing and inspired hope through that work.”
REGSS and the UTSA Women’s Studies Institute are working with the university’s Multicultural Student Center for Equity and Justice to host this year’s events.
Alemán hopes that attendees will leave each event with a curiosity to learn more.
“I really hope that they walk away with the desire to continue learning about the issues and topics addressed at each event,” she said. “By celebrating Women’s History Month at UTSA, we hope to increase the community’s awareness of all the contributions women have made and the continued inequities women face, so more people can be agents of change to better our society.”
