Women's History Month

Women’s History Month is observed annually during the month of March to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of women to our nation’s past, present, and future.  In recognition of the month, we encourage your engagement in the diverse slate of programs, listed below, being held across the University community.

To mark 100 years of Lantern Night and celebrate Women’s History month, the Pitt Alumni Association is sharing stories of some its most remarkable and accomplished alumnae.
