The February Sisters: Remembering & Moving Forward

In February 1972, they took a stand. By occupying a KU building and demanding gender equity in policies that affected women students, faculty, and staff on campus, the courageous February Sisters spurred change locally and nationally. Join us 50 years later as Christine Smith and Kathryn Tuttle recreate these events with special readings, discuss the February Sisters’ impact, and give their thoughts on gender equity today.
