Events & Programs

Women's Month 2024
All month long in March

March is Women's Month! Women’s Month recognizes, affirms, and showcases the achievements, concerns, and diversity of women. A feminist perspective — one that encourages and advances women of all races, political affiliations, national origins, religions, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and income levels — underlies all our programming. The WoMo24 calendar is filled with engaging programs, events, and initiatives that promote, advance, and celebrate women at Virginia Tech and beyond! You will find musical performances, artist talks, scholarly presentations, exhibitions, donation drives, rallies, workshops, networking opportunities, and much more. We are excited to see you out and about at Women's Month programs throughout the month of March.
