Women's History Month


Women's History Month is an annually declared month, celebrated in March in the United States, which highlights the contributions of women to events in contemporary history. This year, the Women's Resource Center will be celebrating both Women's History Month and the 40th anniversary of the BC Women's Resource Center.

This month, we aim to celebrate the accomplishments of past alumnae and present female students. We hope this celebration acts as an impetus to encourage current students to recognize their potential and harness their power to be successful in their post-graduate pursuits.
