This month, Auburn University and the Office of Inclusion and Diversity, or OID, celebrate Women’s History Month and the vast achievements, experiences and contributions of women throughout the world, as well as ways to empower women and girls to make a meaningful impact in the paths they choose.

March also serves as Gender Equality Month and Ethnic Equality Month, which serve an important time to recognize, appreciate and respect the intersectional identities that members of the Auburn Family share. In celebration of the heritage months this month, organizations across Auburn will be hosting several events and initiatives in which students, faculty and staff are welcome to participate.

Women’s History Month began in 1978 as “Women’s History Day” in Sonoma County, California, where educators used the day to increase awareness among their students of women’s contributions to society. It was later expanded to Women’s History Week and was finally nationally recognized by Congress as Women’s History Month in 1987.
