March is National Women’s History Month

March 7th, 2011

In honor of the occasion, College Library is featuring titles from the Women’s Collection related to “Women in Education” in a display on the 3rd floor of the library. The national theme for 2011 is “Our History is Our Strength” and this is especially true of the pioneering women featured in the display. Among the many worthy women who have helped the university attain its eminent position as a top research institution are Margaret H’Doubler who founded the dance program; Helen C. White, the first woman full professor in the College of Letters and Science; Donna Shalala, the first woman chancellor of the university; Germaine Bree, a respected scholar and feminist in the French Department, Elizabeth Waters, an early regent; and Kathryn Clarenbach, the founding chair of the National Organization of Women.

College Library encourages patrons to visit the display and reflect on the many accomplishments made by women affiliated with the University of Wisconsin.
