It’s March, also known as Women’s History Month, and the University of New Haven, in collaboration with the Myatt Center for Diversity and Inclusion, has been working towards making the campus completely aware of women’s history. Multiple programs will be held throughout the month, open to the entire campus community.

Some events have already kicked off since the end of February when the History of Title IX program was held in the German Club. There is even more to come this month, with events almost every day, all centered around awareness and education.

Many events will be service based, raising money and vital products for women across New Haven that are not as fortune as the many University students who will participate to help them.

Every Friday from 12:15 to 1:00 p.m., Women with Weights will be happening in the Beckerman Recreation Center where teachers Bella and Carsin will be hosting a strength and cardio training workout. This event is donation-based and all proceeds will be going towards feminine hygiene products for the New Haven shelter, New Reach, Inc. The total donations will then be matched by the Center for Diversity and Inclusion. In addition, to increase attendance, all non-member guest fees will be waived for University community members.

Not only will money be raised for purchasing feminine hygiene products for New Reach Inc., but throughout the entire month, the CDI will be having a Feminine Product Drive where members of the campus community will be able to to donate hygiene products at the CDI, Rec Center, or Bartels Information Desk.

The University is also making an effort to engage the student body through entertainment events. Everything from movie showings to participatory activities will be held by various organizations all month.

If you missed the monumental movie Hidden Figures, a movie screening will be held on March 24 at 7:30 p.m. in Gehring Hall. The Color Purple and Suffragette will also be shown this month.

On Wednesday, March 29, the CDI along with the International Services Office and Saudi Student Club will have its first World Hijab Day where non-Muslim students will gain the experience of wearing a hijab for the day as Muslim students discuss hijab awareness and spread peace and cultural understanding.
