Women's History Month Events

About Women’s History Month

Wagner College is proud to announce our series of events designed to celebrate and recognize the rich contributions of women in our community and beyond.

March is Women’s History Month which was declared by the U.S. Congress in 1987 to salute women for their invaluable contributions to the growth, prosperity, and moral fiber of this country. Women’s History Month is dedicated to increasing the visibility of all women and women-identified people in the Wagner College community. Join us during March as we bring together clubs, organizations, and community members to celebrate women and highlight the issues impacting women in our community and beyond. We will share stories, elevate women’s voices, and celebrate women whose stories inspire, enrich, and strengthen Wagner College each day.
