Herstory Month

At UCLA, Women's HERstory Month is more than a 31 day celebration in March. It is a narrative of the unheard voices freed from the silence and shadows of history, a declaration of the power of womanhood today and a promise that will usher in the achievements of future generations. Click on any individual link on the calendar to join Bruin women in the arts, sports, and healthcare and in activities and conversations that lead all the way to the C-suite.
