Join our celebration of Women’s History Month 2023! For a chance to appear on our board at sunybroome.edu/womenshistory, tag your posts on Instagram and Twitter with #SUNYBroomeWHM telling us what Women’s History Month means for you.
The Women’s History Month theme for 2023 is Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories. According to the National Women’s History Alliance, “The timely theme honors women in every community who have devoted their lives and talents to producing art, pursuing truth, and reflecting the human condition decade after decade.“
One of the special events held on campus this month will bring this theme to life through a film screen and discussion of the film Madan Sara. The persistence, discipline, and vision of valiant Haitian women is at the heart of Haiti’s informal economy. The film, Madan Sara, tells the story of their tireless work as they ensure that food in Haiti makes its way to market. Despite facing intense hardship and social stigma, the Madan Sara manage to put their children through school, provide housing for their families, and ensure a better life for generations to come.
Check sunybroome.edu/womenshistory for details on this and other events as we celebrate the women of SUNY Broome and around the world.
