Women's College Week reinforces the power of women

Arts and Entertainment critic Joyce Kulhawik '74 joined the Student Government Association on Monday night for an exciting kick-off to Women's College Week. Other speakers included SGA President Rosy Gonzalez '11 and Simmons College President Helen Drinan.

It is a tradition for the Simmons Student Government Association to hold Women's College Week during the month of March to celebrate the past and present accomplishments of women. It's not a coincidence this week falls during Women's History Month, and Monday's kick-off event fits right into this year's theme, Piecing together the Elements of Success.

Simmons College prides itself on being a place that prepares students to become leaders. When speaking with Simmons women, a reoccurring theme is how being surrounded by powerful women in the classroom helped them find their voice and their confidence.

It is important for women's colleges to celebrate the impact this educational environment has on advancing women in the workplace. Make sure to attend at least one, if not all, the Women's College Week events the SGA has planned for this week. (Open to all COF students!)

Send them a message if you have any questions and let us know what your favorite part of Women's College Week is.
