Women’s History Month Display

This post is brought to you by Robert Gregory from the HONR 220 course.

For this month the Honors 220 students present a bookshelf celebrating Women’s History.

During Women’s History Month we will increase our knowledge and understanding of women’s contributions to society. Too often women’s leadership, strength and courage goes unnoticed. “Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.” In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.” Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” (http://womenshistorymonth.gov/about.html) .

This month we will remember, reflect, and commemorate women through the years.

Please feel free to check the bookshelf out. If a book interests you, check it out and read it!

March Film Madness at the Resnick Library

It’s March and the Resnick Library is doing a little spring cleaning. We’re clearing out our VHS tapes and replacing 20 of them with DVDs. Students have the opportunity to vote for which films they’d like to see purchased as DVDs by participating in the libraries March Film Madness event.

The rules are simple:

Vote in person at the library or online here, there is no limit to the number of times you can vote.

Don’t see a movie on our list that you think we ought to have? You can enter it as a Wild Card. In the final week Wild Cards will join the running to see which 20 films come out on top.

At the end of each week in March the 10 films with the least votes will be dropped from the competition.

Happy voting!
