Randolph-Macon College will commemorate Women’s History Month by hosting several
exciting events. The International Women’s Day Open Mic Event will take place
on Friday, March 6, 2009 at 6:00 p.m. in the Topping Room in Old Chapel.
The Office of International Education, the International House and the Gender Resource
Center have joined forces to provide an open mic event in honor of women across
the globe who have made a difference. Bring your music, poetry, artwork, artifacts
and information to share about the women who have impacted your world. For more
information, contact Shalise Bates-Pratt at firstname.lastname@example.org
or Mayumi Nakamura at email@example.com.
On March 11, 2009 at 7:00 p.m., Maryann Breschard’s groundbreaking film “Running
in High Heels” will be shown in the Frank E. Brown Campus Center. Breschard
explores politics and female empowerment by putting the responsibility for women’s
lack of political power directly onto women’s shoulders. The film argues that women
do not need to rise up but wake up and free themselves from stereotypes—but
not femininity. This event is sponsored by The Gender Resource Center, The History
Department and the R-MC Committee on Assemblies and Special Events (CASE). For more
information, contact Shalise Bates-Pratt at firstname.lastname@example.org.
