welcome to women’s history month 2021. this month is a month long celebration of women that aims to both raise awareness and knowledge of women in both history and in the current times. we're proud to be celebrating this month and all women at KU and the union.
we want to celebrate, uplift, protect and be proud of one another. we as a community come in different shades, sizes, abilities and from different walks of life, but we all have a unique shared experience of 'womanhood' - even though we all have a different relation to that word. our compassion and shared identity unites us.
Monday 14th September
with over 100 societies, sports teams, communities plus personal development workshops and our student council, we know there's an opportunity at KU for you. come along to the student opportunities festival to find out more about our groups, how to join, what's coming up for the next semester and more.
All the time
All the places
