31 Valiant Women of NKU

In 1987 the U.S. Congress designated March as National Women’s History Month. This creates a special opportunity in our schools, our workplaces, and our communities to recognize and celebrate the often-overlooked achievements of American women. This year’s theme is:

Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope
The 2022 National Women’s History theme presents the opportunity to honor the work of caregivers and frontline workers during the pandemic. The theme also pays tribute to the many women throughout history and from a multitude of cultures who have led the way in promoting healing and hope.

National Women's History Month 2022 Schedule of Events is presented by the Women's History Month Programming group which is a collaborative group comprised of representatives from departments and divisions campus-wide.

Events are open to students, staff and faculty.
