Women's History Month Events at Kent State Geauga and Twinsburg Academic Center

Recognizing that yesteryear’s movers and shakers provide courage and inspiration for today’s strivers and leaders, we celebrate Women’s History Month every March. Strong women from history are foundational to the story of today’s contemporary women. Recognizing the achievements of women in all facets of life — science, community, government, literature, art, sports, medicine — has a huge impact on the development of self-respect and new opportunities for girls and young women.

Growing out of a small-town school event in California, Women’s History Month now celebrates women’s contributions to history, culture and society. The United States has observed it annually throughout the month of March since 1987. Here at Kent State Geauga (Burton) and Twinsburg Academic Center, we celebrate Women’s History Month with a full slate of engaging events that will motivate, educate and inspire everyone.
