Celebrating Women's History Month at the GTU

The GTU is celebrating Women’s History Month in March by highlighting the voices of GTU alumnae through our “Women’s Voices Campaign.” Beginning on International Women’s Day (Thursday, March 8) and extending through the month, we will feature a short quote from a different GTU alumna each weekday on our Facebook page—and we’ll compile all the quotes on the "Women's Voices Campaign" page of the GTU website. You’ll want to check back every day as these GTU graduates reflect on how their GTU experiences prepared them for the work they are now doing.

In addition, the GTU Women's Studies in Religion certificate program has partnered with other GTU institutions to offer several public events this month that focus on issues of women and gender. Highlights include:

  • "International Women's Day Hip-Hop Performance, Talk, and Q & A" with Dr. Charity Clay, hosted and cosponsored by the Center for the Arts & Religion (Thursday, March 8, 5:15 pm, GTU Student Lounge, 2465 Le Conte Ave., Berkeley)
  • "The Secret Yoga of the Goddess" lecture with Professor Y. Shastri, sponsored by the Center for Dharma Studies (Thursday, March 15, 2:00 pm, GTU Student Lounge, 2465 Le Conte Ave., Berkeley)
  • "Kneading Words" with poet and public intellectual Dr. Gabriella Gutiérrez y Muhs, hosted by PLTS, and cosponsored by CARe (Tuesday, March 20, 7:00 pm, Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary, 2000 Center Street, Suite 200, Berkeley)

With more than 40 women on the full-time faculty across the GTU consortium, and women composing more than 40 percent of our current doctoral students, the GTU stands out as a place where women scholars can thrive and flourish. Celebrate Women's History Month with the definitive leader in preparing women scholars of religion to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
