Women’s History Month is the time of month to recognize the important history of women in this country. COS plans on recognizing this month by holding several events in recognition of this month.
The Art Gallery is open and is exhibiting a variety of artwork that celebrates the history of women. It will be open from now until March 29 in the Kaweah Building Rm 214.
Thursday, March 15 there will be a film showing in the Sierra Building Rm 812. The film Who Does She Think She Is?, directed by Pamela Tanner Boll, is a documentary about five women who are mothers trying to support their children and live for themselves as well and challenges viewers about their perception of women.
The film will be shown and a discussion will follow lead by Art History Professor Allyson Sullivan.
There will be two events held on March 22. At noon, there will be a poetry reading by the Quill Creative Writing Club and English Professor Stacy Brand. And from 5:00- 7:00 p.m. there will be a panel discussion called “Public and Private: A Woman’s Manifesto”.
The panel moderator will be Cynthia Johnson, Professor of Speech/Honor’s Program Leader. The panel will consist of Robin Adsit, Artist, Linda Amaral, COS Dance Instructor, Debra Hansen, Psychology and Sexuality Professor, Michele Hester-Reyes Professor of Spanish and President of Academic Senate, and Robin McGehee, Professor of Communications.
The women will discuss their lives as women, their roles in motherhood, and what it means to be a woman today. The panel will be held in the Ponderosa Building Rm 350 in the Lecture Hall.
All events are free to the public. Also there will be free parking in lots 3 and 7 during evening events. For further information please contact the COS Art Gallery at 559-737-4861 or email Amie Rangel at email@example.com
