Program Description

Program Details

Join our annual celebration of International Women’s Day at the Library and reflect on this year’s theme,  #EachforEqual. ISU Theatre will perform Heroic Stories featuring scenes from the 2019-2020 “HERoic” season, which presents shows advocating for gender equity in the arts. The entire season was written by female playwrights.

After the performance, gather for refreshments and small group conversations to celebrate personal achievements, challenge stereotypes, fight bias, and support a gender equal world. 

Provided in partnership with Ames Public Library, Ames/Story County 19th Amendment Centennial Committee, Assault Care Center Extending Shelter & Support, Iowa State University Library Special Collections and University Archives, Iowa State University Theatre, KHOI Community Radio, League of Women Voters of Ames and Story County, Wheatsfield Cooperative, Women’s & Gender Studies Program at Iowa State University, Worldly Goods, and YWCA Ames-Iowa State University.
