Celebrating International Women’s Day
The Mount was one of the first institutions in Canada to specialize in the education of women, and so naturally the celebration of International Women’s Day is an important date on the University’s calendar. It also, coincidentally, coincides with the 25th Anniversary of the Mount’s Nancy’s Chair in Women’s Studies position and the 35th Anniversary of Atlantis, a women’s studies journal published by the Mount.
In celebration of these important milestones, please join the Mount for a series of events taking place from March 5-9. Check out for a complete list of events or email for more to register.
