The Women 4 Women International Women’s Day

This is a one day Cultural Awareness Event dedicated to celebrating the cultural differences of women by raising awareness of some of the many underrepresented cultures or religions on campus. We plan to have various dancing, speeches, and activities that allow women at our university to learn about various traditions.


Sponsored by SGA and the UofL Women's Center
