Women's History Month | Cheerleaders on ESPN


BGSU LOOKS AT 'GIRL CULTURE' DURING WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH

Madison Kimrey
Little girls are invited to "Toss the Tiara: An Alternative Dress-up and Role Model Day for 3-6 Year Olds" when BGSU kicks off Women's History Month from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday (March 1) in 308 Bowen-Thompson Student Union. The costumes are from careers in which women are underrepresented, such as farming and aviation. Boys are also welcome to attend the event, which is free and open to the public.

"Girl Culture" is the theme of the University's celebration this year, with programs that explore the meaning of girlhood and the experiences of contemporary girls in the U.S. Events that appeal to girls and women of all ages, and those who care about them, are planned by the Women's Center and the Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program in partnership with 15 co-sponsoring organizations on and off campus. All the programs are free of charge.

Not only are the month's events designed for girls and women of all ages, the presenters are also of all ages.

Keynote speaker Madison Kimrey, a 12-year-old political activist and suffragette, will present "Only Six Years until I'm an Adult: My Life as a Pre-Teen Activist," at 7 p.m. March 24 in 206 Union. Kimrey has worked to restore voter preregistration for 16- and 17-year-olds in her home state of North Carolina.
