WIU Celebrates Women’s History Month Throughout March

MACOMB, IL – This year, Western Illinois University’s Women’s Center will host Women’s History Month throughout March, supporting the National Women’s History Month theme of “Providing Healing, Promoting Hope”.

This month is dedicated helping women learn how to love their bodies and celebrating the aspects that make them unique. “This year, we are celebrating the accomplishments and achievements of women, while also supporting their mental and physical well-being,” said WIU Women’s Center Graduate Assistant Damiloka Abiodun-Adewusi.

This year’s national theme is a homage to caregivers and frontline workers’ tireless efforts throughout the current pandemic, as well as a commemoration of the many ways women of all cultures have brought healing and hope throughout history.

“While our mission to fight for women’s equality impacts lives every day, it is amazing to be able to celebrate this work throughout the month of March,” said WIU Graduate Assistant Haley Rednour.

Other activities in support of this theme include workshops, films, discussions, fitness and health through yoga and self-care are designed to inform, inspire and empower.

All participants, at all of the events, are expected to follow COVID-19 guidelines.
