Celebrate Women’s History Month with Hardin-Simmons University

March 3, 2023 Mary Burke

March is Women’s History Month and March 8 is International Women’s Day. Throughout the month, like all awareness days, we are reminded to listen to people’s stories and to give them the space to be heard.

There are multiple ways to celebrate Women’s History Month with HSU:

All month

  • Swing by the History Department or HSU Library Circulation Desk for your purple ribbon to show support!
  • Donate feminine hygiene products for local outreach groups, including Noah Project and New Beginnings. Collections points are the HSU Library, the Department of Social Work in Skiles (first floor), and Dr.Tiffany Fink’s office in Skiles 206.

March 8 

  • 8:30 a.m. guided prayer for women around the world in the Logsdon Reception room
  • 11:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. food, games, and fun on Anderson Lawn

International Womens Day events on campus

  • Off-campus, Dr. Tiffany Fink will provide a free public history talk titled “Half the Population, Only Half the Court: Title IX and Women’s Collegiate Basketball in Texas.” This event is free and open to the public at The Grace Museum at 6:00 p.m.
