International Women’s Day (IWD) is on March 8 and was founded in 1911. IWD brings attention to women’s rights, gender equality and discrimination with the theme Each for Equal. The campaign encourages challenging stereotypes, bias and to fight for gender equality.
It also celebrates the hard work, dedication and accomplishments of women around the world. In honor of IWD, these women around campus are celebrated.
With a diverse population on campus, the women working at and attending Pierce are no exception. Professors and students work in and out of class to increase their college experience.
Whether it’s directing a play, teaching sign language or helping out at the library, or spending down time with friends, women are an integral part of the campus.
