Women's Week at Manhattan College

A series of events aims to celebrate and empower women in our Lasallian Catholic community.

10.19.18-Lasallian-Women-and-Gender-Resource-Center-Ribbon-Cutting-Cuppek-169-1.jpgAdvocacy, activism and gender define this year’s Women’s Week at Manhattan College, beginning on Thursday, March 28. 

Highlighted by the third annual Lasallian Women’s Conference, the series is also scheduled to include athletic events, seminars and an off-campus excursion. Throughout the week, the newly opened Lasallian Women and Gender Resource Center finds different ways of discussing feminism in the Lasallian Catholic charism; on April 3, check out #MeToo and the Book of Esther.
