International Women’s Day (IWD) is a globally recognized day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 we at CSU would like to acknowledge the global experience of women by focusing on the characteristic of resilience. International Women’s Day is a time to reflect on progress made toward the liberation of women, to call for change to policies and practices that continue to hold women back, and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their nations and communities.
This year, for International Women’s Day we gathered 23 CSU students, faculty, staff, and alumna to share their stories and reflections on resilience. Please join us for the showcase of this extraordinary story-telling project. Hear the stories of some of these women featured in the project, learn more about CSU’s initiatives around resiliency, and view the powerful portrait exhibition of CSU women sharing stories of resiliency.
