Working to Form a More Perfect Union: Honoring Women in Public Service and Government

Women’s History Month, which began with the first International Women’s Day in 1911, expanded to a week-long celebration in 1980 and a month-long celebration in 1987. This year’s observance focuses on women who have shaped the world through their public service, leadership in government, and commitment to human rights.  Regis is hosting a variety of events to commemorate this year’s Women’s History Month; all are free and open to the public. Please join us!
