PRESBYTERIAN COLLEGE CELEBRATES WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH

March 17, 2021
Women’s History Month is a chance to celebrate the incredible contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. To honor this month, Presbyterian College has created a full schedule of special events and activities celebrating Women’s History Month throughout the month of March.

Women in Politics

Join us on Thursday, March 11 at 7pm for a “Women in Politics Panel” either in-person or via Zoom as we explore the impact of women in politics. We’ll engage in conversations led by Dr. Erin McAdams and Dr. Emily Taylor, alongside students Ndayishimiye Florence and Gabriella Evans. The discussion will explore the significance of women as voters, organizers and politicians. Enjoy this event either in-person at the Kuhne Auditorium, or via Zoom by emailing Rev. Raquel Gill by 5pm on Thursday, March 11 for the link.

This event is made possible by the Religious Life and Multicultural Community Engagement, the Political Science Club, and the PC NAACP Chapter.

Women in Sports

Did you know that women’s lacrosse was introduced in 1890 at the St. Leonard’s School in St Andrew’s, Scotland? The lacrosse tradition continues today at Presbyterian College as a growing and thriving sport. On Wednesday, March 17 at 7pm, show your support for the PC women’s lacrosse team as they square off with Gardner-Webb at Bailey Memorial Stadium. While you’re at the game, here’s a bit of lacrosse trivia to uncover: what do the terms “bouncer” and “apple” mean on the lacrosse field?

Women in the Bible

On Monday, March, 22 at 8pm, join us for “Fishbowl,” our weekly conversation forum in Neville, Room 122. Dr. Bob Bryant will share insights from his popular course “Women in the Bible.” For more information, contact Bluefish Directors Seth Bannister and Kendall McGeorge.

Empowerment Board Party

On Tuesday, March, 23 at 7pm, join us at Springs Gym for an “Empowerment Board Party!” This creative event is open to all who identify as women. You’ll have an opportunity to create a vision board that includes inspirational quotes, plus images of affirmation and empowerment. Bring scissors and glue sticks if you are able. This is an opportunity to show your creative side alongside friends!

Women in Leadership: 100 Years of Change & Growth

On Tuesday, March, 30 at 7pm over Zoom, join us for a compelling discussion with Dr. Sue Pressman, current President of the American Counseling Association.
