Submit a program for Women’s Month 2022: The First 100 Years of Women at Virginia Tech

Celebrating 100 Years of Women at Virginia Tech

From: Women's Center at Virginia Tech

Planning is underway for the annual Women’s Month celebration at Virginia Tech, in conjunction with National Women’s History Month in March. Individuals and groups are invited to plan and submit programs for inclusion in the Women's Month calendar. 

The theme of Women’s Month in March 2022 is The First 100 Years of Women at Virginia Tech. In 1921, Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College and Polytechnic Institute admitted the first female students, as Mary Ella Carr Brumfield (biology), Ruth Terrett (civil engineering), Lucy Lee Lancaster (biology), Louise Jacobs (chemistry), and Carrie Taylor Sibold (biology) enrolled full-time. On the eve of Virginia Tech's Sesquicentennial, Women’s Month 2022 celebrates this milestone, reflects on the advancements women have made over the past century, and imagines the next 100 years for women at Virginia Tech.

Women’s Month recognizes, affirms, and showcases the achievements, concerns, and diversity of women. A feminist perspective — one that encourages and advances women of all races, political affiliations, national origins, religions, ages, abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities, and income levels — underlies all our programming. To honor Virginia Tech's ongoing commitment to celebrating diverse and inclusive communities, the Women’s Month 2022 calendar will include programs and events aligned with the Virginia Tech Principles of Community.

The Women’s Month 2022: The First 100 Years of Women at Virginia Tech calendar will be distributed widely throughout the university, surrounding communities, and online digitally.  

The deadline for program submissions is Friday, Feb. 4, by 11:59 p.m. EST. Please submit your program proposal by clicking here.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Anna LoMascolo, co-director for programming at the Women's Center, at alomasco@vt.edu.
