2020 Women's History Month Calendar

The University is committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus community. The steps we are taking are at the recommendation of the state of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Health and Public Health - Dayton & Montgomery County are in the best interest of UD and the surrounding community. To our knowledge, there are no COVID-19 cases connected to UD; however, the University is remaining vigilant. Our highly residential campus environment and our responsibility to the larger issue of public health require us to be proactive, rather than reactive, in making decisions that affect the well-being of our community.

In an abundance of caution, all University-sponsored events and gatherings are postponed until further notice. This includes the Women's History Month programming slated for this month. We will do our best to reschedule these programs and events.

As the situation concerning COVID-19 evolves, the University will post updates and other information HERE

Voices of Courage Book Drive

Sunday, March 1 - Tuesday, March 31

In celebration of Women's History Month, the University of Dayton Women's Center has partnered with The Conscious Connect, a non-profit organization in Dayton, Ohio dedicated to school-age and neighborhood literacy. We are collecting books for YWCA-Dayton who serve women with children from infants to 18 years old. It's critical that children see themselves represented in books and have access to positive role models of courageous women. Our goal is to collect books focusing on women in STEM, historical figures and strong women role models, and books that highlight dealing with trauma in a positive manner, all with an emphasis on racial and ethnic minorities.

Suffrage, But for Whom?

This research guide is meant to provide general information and a starting point to discuss suffrage as we recognize 2020 as the centennial celebration of women's suffrage in the United States with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1920. This guide attempts to critically examine the dominant narrative of women's suffrage in the United States by highlighting stories and historical activities often not discussed or cited in the literature with the goal of creating a more holistic and inclusive understanding of the women's suffrage movement.
