March is Women's Month, so MacCurdy House women were involved in many activities around campus.
Anniversary of Women's Suffrage, March 6 - 7
MacCurdy house women designed a display in the library and handed out quotes by influential women (attached to candy) around campus, to raise awareness of American women obtaining the right to vote.
International Women's Day, March 9
MacCurdy House residents spread awareness of women in other cultures by sponsoring presentations by Korean, Mexican, and French female students. They highlighted video, music, and ethnic cuisine from each culture. This event was co-sponsored by the International Club.
Meet MacCurdy, March 13
MacCurdy House residents hosted an event so that women on campus could learn more about the house and explore the possibility of living there for the 2006-2007 school year.
Relay for Life, March 25-26
MacCurdy House residents created a team to participate in this walk to raise money for the American Cancer Society. They were able to raise over $2000 in pledges.
Take Back the Night March and Rally, March 28
MacCurdy House residents planned and coordinated this event to call attention to the issue of violence against women. Take Back the Night events are held because of the belief that women have the right to move freely in their communities at day and night without fear of harassment and sexual assault. The event included a rally, a march around campus & through town, and a speak-out.
