Union of Kingston Students presents...


Womens History Month 2021


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.
