Nevertheless She Persisted: Honoring Women Who Fight All Forms of Discrimination Against Women

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. According to the National Women’s History Project, this year’s theme "presents the opportunity to honor women who have shaped America’s history and its future through their tireless commitment to ending discrimination against women and girls. Through this theme we celebrate women fighting not only against sexism, but also against the many intersecting forms of discrimination faced by American women including discrimination based on race and ethnicity, class, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, and many other categories." Regis is hosting its annual keynote lecture to commemorate this year’s Women’s History Month; the event is free and open to the public. Please join us!
