CPP Celebrates Womxn's Herstory Month with Campus Events

3 students at the Womxn's Resource Center.

Cal Poly Pomona will host numerous events throughout Womxn’s Herstory Month in March to raise awareness and support women’s contributions and issues.

In recognition of the multiplicity of gender expressions that exist and to be inclusive of the womxn-identifying population, the term “womxn” is used to mark this month. The term “herstory” reflects the importance of viewing the past from a feminist perspective with special attention to the experience of women.

We invite the entire CPP community to participate in these uplifting and empowering events throughout the month:
