Herstory Month

The Personal is Political

Since 1985, March has been designated by Congress and the President of the United States as Women’s History Month.  This proclamation is intended to recognize the struggles and celebrate the achievements of women in the United States.  The Library of Congress states that, “…women have struggled throughout our history to gain rights not simply for themselves but for many other under-represented and disenfranchised groups in America.”

Many campuses, including CSUSM, have begun celebrating Women’s Herstory Month with their communities.  The concept of herstory has been coined as a way to look at history through the experiences of women.

At CSUSM Women’s Herstory Month is a campus-wide celebration.  Our campus partners include, but are not limited to:
