"Women's History Month is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the contributions that women have made to U.S. society and our Coastal community more specifically," said Ina Seethaler, CCU assistant professor and director of Women's and Gender Studies. "The goal is to spotlight women and their achievements so that they may serve as role models for a new generation of strong women. We hope that everyone at CCU will find an event of interest and will help us recognize women's talents and social justice efforts, which often go unrecognized."
