Women's Month at Virginia Tech

Women's Month 2019 Celebrating Milestones


The 2019 Women's Month theme was “Celebrating Milestones: Building on the power of firsts,” which was inspired by the hard won successes of those who have taken risks to advance women across generations. In March 2019, we  featured a calendar of events that reflected upon the past, celebrated the present, and envisioned and shaped the possibilities ahead.

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.  Women’s Month is an annual event occurring in March, National Women’s History Month.

Women’s Month is a non-profit community project funded by the university, student groups, local businesses, and citizens’ contributions.  It is the combined effort of students, faculty, staff, and administrators at Virginia Tech as well as activists, residents, and civic leaders of the surrounding communities.
