The University of Minnesota Archives is celebrating Women’s History Month with a series of social media posts on Twitter.

The University of Minnesota has been shaped by the contributions and vision of all the women who have studied or worked here, and this month gives us a chance to recognize a handful out of the many. These posts highlight our alumna, faculty, staff, and administrators, as well as the organizations and activities led by women, who have made their mark on the University, the State of Minnesota, and the global community. The University’s history is women’s history. 

Please follow us on Twitter to see new posts throughout the month, or follow the hashtag #WomensHistoryMonth.
