Happy Women's History Month! Simmons College is celebrating big this year with a special visit from Gloria Steinem, one of the most significant and iconic figures of the women's rights movement. She will be on campus March 22 to discuss modern day feminism.

From the Simmons College Press Room:

Steinem, who last visited the Simmons campus 40 years ago in 1973 when she received the first doctorate for Human Justice awarded by the College, will address students, faculty, and staff in the talk, "The F Word: Feminism Today." Steinem's visit is part of SimmonsPalooza, a series of events and programs focused on the celebration of diversity, inclusion, and social activism at Simmons. The event is being organized by the Simmons Class of 2013 in collaboration with the Office of Student Leadership and Activities, the President's Office, and the Alumnae Association Executive Board.

The event is for the Simmons community and is not open to the public.

Women's History Month began in 1987 when the National Women's History Project petitioned Congress to officially recognize women's history, which at the time was largely missing from the general public consciousness.

In addition to Gloria Steinem's visit, Simmons is celebrating Women's History Month with several events scheduled throughout March that are open to the public. Highlights include:
