International Women's Day


Save the Date 

Sunday, March 13, 2016

Time: 2-6pm

Location: Baker Ballroom

Over 600 members of the campus and community gather together every year to celebrate International Women’s Day at Ohio University. The International Women's Day Festival provides an opportunity for the campus community to highlight women’s and girl’s achievements, to reflect on women’s status today, and to imagine a future where all women are valued as local, national, and global citizens.

We encourage all members of our community – domestic and international, students, faculty, staff, and community and family members - to participate in this event.
