Women's History Month is a celebration of women's contributions to history, culture and society; and has been observed annually in the month of March in the United States since 1987.

On March 8, 1911, a global celebration of the economic, political and social achievements of women, took place for the first time. The United Nations General Assembly cited the following reasons: "To recognize the fact that securing peace and social progress and the full enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms require the active participation, equality and development of women; and to acknowledge the contribution of women to the strengthening of international peace and security."

Multicultural Affairs has programmed an array of presentations, honoring women's achievements, sponsored by each of the departments: African-American, Hispanic, International, and Native Affairs.

Description: Her face may be half paralyzed, but that hasn't stopped Dawn Shaw from living a fulfilling life and creating confidence in others. This presentation addresses how outside forces influences your choices, the importance of putting your own needs first, and how attitude affects perception and outlook. Through her personal stories and challenges, Dawn conveys how the choices we make determine our identity, including how we are seen by others. Accepting your uniqueness, understanding your value, and worrying less about what others think builds resilience and develops a stronger self-image.
