Women of Character, Courage & Commitment

Women’s History Month, which began with the first International Women’s Day in 1911, expanded to a week-long celebration in 1980 and a month-long celebration in 1987. This year’s observance focuses on women of character, courage and commitment, and the remarkable and often unnoticed tenacity of women. Regis is hosting a variety of events to commemorate this year’s Women’s History Month; all are free and open to the public. Please join us!
