St. Francis College to celebrate Women’s History Month

St. Francis College celebrates Women’s History Month with a full slate of free events that feature successful women in politics, the film industry and the arts. 

The month begins with a Women in Government symposium moderated by former state Assemblymember Joan Millman, new Scholar in Residence at St. Francis College. Millman will welcome state Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon and state Sen. Roxanne Persaud for the launch of a new lecture series on Thursday, March 3 at 11:10 a.m. in the college’s Maroney Forum for Arts, Culture & Education (Room 7402 at 180 Remsen St.).

The following week, on Monday, March 7 at 12:20 p.m. in the Maroney Forum, professional author, advocate and photographer Alyscia Cunningham will speak about embracing our natural beauty. Cunningham will point out the distinctions between the natural beauty each of us has within vs. societal and external measures of beauty and worth. Her talk is part of the college’s yearlong focus on respect and is co-sponsored by The Women’s Center/Women’s Studies Minor, the American Studies Program and the Department of English.
