Women's History Month

In 1981, Congress decided to observe National Women's History Week the second week in March. In 1987, Congress voted to expand the celebration to the entire month of March.

During Women's History Month, Washington and Lee seeks not only to recognize the history and achievements of women, it also seeks to honor the women on the campus at all levels.

In addition to lectures and panel discussions, Knowledge Empowering Women Leaders (KEWL) implemented Love Your Body Week and a Female is Beautiful campaign as well as posted celebration women bios of the women of KEWL online.
