Speakers, Performers & Special Events

Throughout the year 2018-19, the university will welcome a wide variety of speakers and performers whose work, we hope, will stimulate, provoke, caution, comfort, exhort, inspire, and enthrall. Not all will be women. Not all will talk about gender. Most, we expect, will explore new ideas.

Some of our speakers will come from elsewhere in the world. Some may be your neighbors.  Some will dance.  Some will sing.  Some will present equations. 

Whatever their backgrounds, whatever their stories, our speakers and performers will help us acknowledge the university's history, commemorate those 24 women who changed the status quo, and celebrate those thousands of women who came after the initial 24 and are still having an impact on the world.
