Women's Herstory Month Events
Continue During Week Before Spring Break

RELEASED: Feb. 26, 2007

EAU CLAIRE — Women's Herstory Month celebrations continue at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a variety of events, including lectures, music and more scheduled for the final weeks.

Monday, March 12:

  • The Artist Series presents "Montana Rep: Neil Simon's 'Lost in Yonkers'" at 7:30 p.m. in Gantner Concert Hall of the Haas Fine Arts Center. The New York Times advises, "Buckle up and brace yourself for the theatre season's wildest ride." Montana Rep's touring production of the Neil Simon classic "Lost in Yonkers" is a funny but deeply heartfelt tale of a dysfunctional family in 1940s New York. Ticket information is available at the University Service Center in Davies Center.

Tuesday, March 13:

  • The Women's and Gender Equity Center, College Feminists, and Student Health Services will host a booth in Davies Center by the Service Center desk from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. called "Back Up Your Birth Control with EC." This information booth will provide free condoms and literature on how to access emergency contraception. The booth will be in Davies Center Tuesday-Thursday, March 13-15. Contact wage@uwec.edu or 715-836-2693 for more information.

Wednesday, March 14:

  • Dr. Jill Pinkney Pastrana will present "Negotiating the Global and the Local: Educational Reform and Neoliberalism in Chile" from 12:10-12:50 p.m. in the President's Room, Davies Center. This event is free and open to everyone. Bring your own lunch.
  • From 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., A re-creation of Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party" will take place in the Hibbard Hall Penthouse. This work of art commemorates the overlooked achievements of women from prehistory to the 20th century. Choose a woman from history and come willing to share what you know about her. Dressing up in character is optional, but encouraged. This potluck for faculty and staff; students and community members is free. Bring a dish; beverages are provided.

Thursday, March 15:

  • "Shakespeare's Women: Bawdy, Wicked, Winsome, and Wise" will be presented at 7 p.m. in the Chippewa Room of LE Phillips Memorial Public Library. This free discussion covers "Antony and Cleopatra" and/or "Macbeth." Our question for the week: Are these charismatic women to blame for the ruin of their men?
  • College Feminists present, "Back Up Your Birth Control Day." Join us on the campus mall to play games and test your knowledge about birth control and emergency contraception for a chance to win prizes. This event will last from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and is free and open to all.

Friday, March 16:

  • The LGBT Community Center holds their Weekly Drop-in Night every Friday evening from 7 until 10 p.m. Anyone is welcome to stop into the Center for a soda or light snack, to enjoy a game or interesting conversation or to browse the library. Non-members are invited to stop in and see what the Center has to offer.

There will be no Women's Herstory Month events on campus the week of Spring Break, March 19-23.
